A proposal to ban smoking in private cars has been agreed by peers and sent to MPs for consideration.

Lord Ribeiro saw his Smoke-free Private Vehicles Bill nodded through the Lords but the plan will inch closer to the statute books only if it is adopted by an MP in the Commons.

The bill would outlaw smoking in cars which are carrying children, with a penalty of a smoke-free awareness course at a first offence, or a £60 fine.
