The latest survey of almost 14,000 adults and children, published by NHS Digital, shows that the numbers of children who have had a cigarette is the lowest on record.

The survey found that four percent of those aged 8 to 15 had tried a cigarette, compared with 19 percent of those of the same age in 2003.
