Hockney backs new smoking plan


Internationally renowned artist David Hockney has joined East Yorkshire MP Greg Knight's campaign for designated smoking areas in pubs and restaurants.

Hockney, who is regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, said he is "angry" and "fed up of being treated like a child" by the law which came into force two years ago.

Mr Knight is calling for pubs and restaurants to have designated smoking areas.
