'Fantastic for public health'.

COVENTRY GP Dr Peter O'Brien (above) said the ban was fantastic news for public health.

Dr O'Brien, of the Forest Medical Centre Allesley Old Road, Chapelfields, said: "The social perception of smoking is changing, and that's brilliant - especially for those non-smokers who work in pubs and are put in real danger.

"It's also good news for people who do smoke. (A ban) helps smokers to cut down.

"And in places like Ireland where smoking has been banned, the takings of pubs and clubs don't seem to have been seriously affected."
