Only one person has been fined for smoking in a car when children are present in the first 12 months since the ban was introduced, according to an investigation.

The law banning smoking in a car or other vehicle when travelling with anyone under the age of 18 was introduced in October 2015 and aimed to cut the risk of passive smoking among children. Motorists and passengers were warned they could face a £50 penalty when the new regime was unveiled.
