Smoke in Stoke

The BBC reports:
People are still lighting up in Stoke-on-Trent's pubs after a bureaucratic mistake over the ban on smoking in enclosed public spaces.

On-the-spot fines cannot yet be issued to smokers flouting the 1 July ban because of "late changes in technical bits of legislation", the council said.

One publican in Hanley has now reportedly put cheeky "Welcome to Smoke-on-Trent" posters in his bar.
