Charities back bid to cut smoking in cars.

TWO Welsh charities have got behind Fresh Start Wales, the Welsh Government's campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of smoking in cars.

Both the British Heart Foundation and the British Lung Foundation in Wales have given their support to the campaign hoping that it will encourage people to find out more about the harmful effects of second-hand smoke.

Fresh Start Wales aims to reduce children's exposure to second-hand smoke by raising awareness of the associated dangers it poses.

Second-hand smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals while much of cigarette smoke is invisible and has no smell, which makes it harder to detect the danger.

Chris Mulholland, head of the British Lung Foundation Wales, said: "We are happy to support Fresh Start Wales' campaign."
