Hospital trust backs smoking ban
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has announced that it is to ban smoking in its buildings from July.

The decision follows three months of consultation. Two thirds of the people who responded were in favour of stopping people from smoking.

On Friday the board of the hospital NHS Trust approved the proposal for a full ban on smoking at its hospitals.

The survey also found that 71% of the smokers who responded said they would easily cope with a smoking ban.
