DRIVERS will be banned from smoking in cars if they're carrying children as passengers.

The move, which will become the law on October 1, follows a similar ban in Wales.

However, the new rule will not apply to anyone driving alone or in a convertible with the top down.

The regulations were passed after 342 MPs voted in favour, while 74 voted against.

What do you think? Is it a good move or will it be too hard to enforce? Have your say.
