Pretend Cigarettes Banned From More UK Trains and Stations

Those delicious meat-flavoured e-cigarettes are quickly making new enemies in the UK, with the smokeless nicotine machines finding themselves banned from an increasing number of public places. Our rail stations are quickly stubbing them out.

Rail companies C2C, Greater Anglia and First Capital Connect have now banned the use of the devices on their trains and premises, claiming their crackdown is "in line with the British Medical Association's recommendation that e-cigarettes should be included in the ban on smoking in public places."

Scotrail has also previously banned e-cigs, claiming their use can "unsettle" other passengers, who might think that the smoking of real cigarettes on trains has suddenly been allowed again under some weird whim of David Cameron. [Telegraph]
