It's been announced that a whole month dedicated getting people to give up smoking will return for another year.

Last year October became Stoptober and 160,000 people quit smoking nationally as a result.

The health bodies behind it, including Smokefree South West, say that, if people can stop smoking for 28 days, they are five times more likely to stay smokefree.

They also say it will add up to seven days to their lives.
