Michelle Hurst: I'm sorry, but this may be a case of no smoke without fire
Michelle Hurst on the benefits, or otherwise, of electronic cigarettes – read Hearsay in full in today’s Grimsby Telegraph
Can you remember when people could smoke in the cinema, or even in hospital beds?
Okay, that may have been many moons ago, but it’s not that long ago that smokers were able to light up in pubs and restaurants.
And, yet, how shocking to imagine someone doing that now?

The smoking ban just over five years ago may have contributed to the demise of many pubs, as has been claimed, although cheap supermarket booze is just as much to blame, in my opinion.
But we have got used to drinking and eating in smoke-free zones.
So I was somewhat surprised to see a woman puffing away as I sipped a coffee in the middle of Freshney Place recently.
She wasn’t puffing on a traditional cigarette, but an electronic cigarette – and I was even more surprised to learn that the rules surrounding so-called e-cigarettes is vague at best, unlegislated at worst.
