Investigation on Illegal Sale of e-cigarettes to Minors in UK
Three vendors in Stoke-on-Trent were investigated for selling e-cigarettes to minors, resulting in the closure of two shops.

According to the Stokesentinel, the city council of Stoke-on-Trent in the UK has recently launched an investigation into three local merchants. This action was prompted by officials from the council's Trading Standards Department, who discovered that these merchants were selling e-cigarettes to minors.


According to the investigation, two shops were found to be selling illegal e-cigarettes and hookahs, which have since been shut down. City council member Jane Ashworth stated her disappointment with three vendors who failed to comply with the law and sold illegal products, despite the commendable efforts of officials and volunteers from the Trade Standards Bureau during the crackdown.


According to the parliamentary spokesperson, citizens or businesses can report any concerns they may have regarding the supply or sale of illicit tobacco or e-cigarettes through a hotline or website.
