Cigarettes could be banned at Derby County's ground
Derby County is considering an outright ban on smoking at Pride Park stadium.

The smoke-free move will be tested during the England Under 21 match against Holland next month.

The club will gauge feedback before deciding whether to make the ban permanent on the terraces and all over the ground at Pride Park.

Derby County's Jim Fearn said: "Let's be honest, you can fly in a plane and not smoke for hours, you can watch a football match and not have a fag."
