Sunday, January 27, 2013 - 18:25

THE proportion of people on the Isle of Wight who smoke is below the national average.
Figures show around 18 per cent of Islanders smoke — 2.7 per cent lower than the rest of the country.
In his monthly report to the Isle of Wight Council this month, the cabinet member for public health, Cllr Dave Stewart, said: "Although in 2011 some 22 per cent of expectant mothers on the Island were smokers at the time of delivery, the trend is now clearly downward."
