No smoking signs will be put up at play areas in Inverclyde, Scotland as part of a pilot smoke-free project, it has been reported.

Signage will be installed at four play parks – King Street in Gourock, Battery Park in Greenock, Coronation Park in Port Glasgow and Birkmyre Park in Kilmacolm, over the coming weeks, reports.

The initiative is the first of its kind in Scotland.

Inverclyde Council used a Citizen's Panel survey to consult residents on the plans. It found that 87 per cent of people were in support of the proposal to make children's outdoor play areas smoke-free.

The initiative aims to make smoking less attractive to young people by avoiding exposing them to adult role models who smoke.

Councillor Stephen McCabe said: "I am pleased that Inverclyde is the first area in Scotland to initiate a pilot of smoke-free play parks."

Last week saw the fifth anniversary of the ban on smoking in enclosed public spaces in Scotland.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800483860-ADNFCR
