Disposable vapes could be banned under new laws to prevent children from becoming addicted to them

Health ministers are preparing to act after growing concerns that companies are marketing the products to those aged under 18.

Disposable vapes do not need setting up, refilling, or recharging.

Vapes are sold in supermarkets and corner shops around the UK and come in sweet and fruity flavours such as bubblegum, strawberry lemonade, and blueberry.
