    E-cigarettes could be outlawed under new WHO plans to ban vaping
    Open vaping - which allows people to control their device and its ingredients - could be outlawed if the group's advice is adopted, according to reports

    Vaping could be under threat in Britain after the World Health Organisation recommended a ban under new plans, reports say.

    Open vaping - which allows people to control their device and its ingredients - could be outlawed if the group's advice is adopted, it is said.

    The organisation fears the method - which is used by millions of Brits - can be more harmful as other substances can be added, reports The Sun on Sunday.

    So it is now apparently proposing to prohibit open vaping in plans sent to governments across the globe, which will be considered at a conference in Glasgow later this year.

    If adopted, the plans could mean problems for the estimated 2.4million Brits who vape and thousands of businesses which rely on the lucrative sector.

    E-cigarettes are already banned in several countries around the world.

    Details of the potential prohibition have come out of a published by the World Health Organisation's (WHO) tobacco regulatory committee, the newspaper said.

    It is said to target vapes which allow "the user to control device features and liquid ingredients", like refilling manually and removing the mouthpiece.

    But experts fear the supposed plans could drive more people back towards smoking cigarettes.

    Clive Bates, the former director of Action on Smoking and Health, told The Sun on Sunday: "The advice is completely irresponsible and bizarre.

    "If governments take it seriously, they will be protecting the cigarette trade, encouraging smoking and adding to a huge toll of cancer, heart and lung disease.

    "Something has gone badly wrong here.”
