Cigarette laws 'ignored' by shops

14th September 2009

The Local Authorities Coordinators of Regulatory Services (Lacors) said one in five corner shops break the law and allow children and teenagers to buy cigarettes.

Lacors chairman Paul Bettison said: "Councils are doing everything in their power to protect young people from the dangers of smoking but retailers are effectively only being slapped on the wrist with minuscule fines. Less than £100 is hardly enough to make a shopkeeper think twice."
