    Town hall ban on staff using e-cigarettes in public view

    A town hall has banned its workers from using electronic cigarettes ‘in public view’.

    Salford council has banned staff from using the devices – which taste and feel like cigarettes without the tar – close to any of its buildings.

    Its new smoking policy says that e-cigarettes should be treated like conventional tobacco so that smoking isn’t ‘normalised’.

    The policy, drawn up by town hall bosses, says: “Where smoking does takes place outside, the location should be out of public view wherever possible and must not be:

    – Directly outside buildings

    – Constitute a risk in terms of fire;

    – Be adjacent to doors or windows where second hand smoke could enter the building.

    A report prepared for a town hall meeting says these rules should also apply to e-cigarettes because they ‘resemble’ normal cigarettes.

    And "Pineapple Puddlecote" is not happy ................

    E-cigs (which are not alight) constitute a fire risk now? And emit second hand smoke despite not involving anything being burned? Do Salford councillors have extraordinarily large feet, bulbous bright red round noses and a car that falls apart when they slam a door?
