The government also plans to reduce vaping among children by restricting sweet and fruity flavors, making packs one-size-fits-all and making products less visible in stores. 

"As any parent or teacher will know, one of the most worrying trends at the moment is the rise in vaping among children. We must intervene before it becomes endemic." 

"As Prime Minister, my responsibility is to take bold steps for our country. That is why I am taking the bold step of banning disposable electronic cigarettes, which are increasing use among our children."

Although electronic alternatives are available for those who want to quit smoking, doctors point out that the long-term effects of these products are still unknown.

According to the latest data, 9 percent of children aged 11-15 in Britain use electronic cigarettes.
