England 'on track' to stamp out smoking

The government has set out an ambitious plan to make England effectively smoke-free in the next few decades.

The new Tobacco Control Plan aims to slash smoking rates from 15.5% to 12% of the population by 2022, paving the way to a smoke-free generation.

If national smoking rates continue to fall, this generation of non-smokers could be achieved by 2030, the charity Action on Smoking says.

Health officials says smoking currently kills 200 people a day in England.
