MORE than 250 portable cigarette pouches were handed out by Smokefree North Somerset during the Weston In Bloom judging day.

Last year, judges pointed out cigarette litter was noticeable so this year a stall was set up in the Italian Gardens to hand out the pockets which hold used butts.

North Somerset Council’s tobacco control co-ordinator Miriam Thornton said: “We created this display to raise awareness of the damage discarded cigarette butts do.”
