People who smoke are being reminded of the dangers of passive smoking (second-hand smoke) in a Government advertising campaign  both via TV and online adverts.

The latest research suggests that the NHS spends around £23m each year on children affected by passive smoking, eg breathing-related illnesses such as asthma, ear problems and other related conditions.
