A pub landlady in Wales who used handwritten no smoking signs before her standardised versions arrived has been fined.

It was found that Dawn Lemm's pub the Judge and Jury had violated regulations which stipulate that no smoking signs need to be rectangular, while their shortest side must span a minimum length of 6.3 inches, reports the Daily Mail.

Her handwritten posters also did not feature a "graphic representation of a burning cigarette enclosed in a red circle with a red bar which crosses the cigarette symbol", which is necessary for the signs.

Ms Lemm confessed to failing to ensure the display of proper signs and therefore had to pay a £150 fine and £120 in costs. In addition, she was handed a £15 victims' surcharge.

This week, Peterborough Today revealed that visitors to Peterborough City Hospital have called on chiefs to build a dedicated shelter for smokers.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800684418-ADNFCR
