Lancashire’s Stoptober campaign has been hailed a success following the release of the latest stop-smoking figures.

They show 45 per cent of people who decided to quit smoking in October - as a result of Stoptober with the help of their local stop smoking service - have now quit for four weeks or longer. Nearly 400 people are now classed as longer-term quitters.
