Researchers highlight dangers in report
ABERDEEN researchers have backed a proposal to ban smoking in private cars.

Their report also highlighted the dangers to youngsters including a risk of sudden infant death, meningitis and respiratory conditions.
The Smoke-free Private Vehicles Bill to ban smoking in private cars is currently being considered by MPs. The bill would outlaw smoking in cars carrying children.
