The Isle of Man has banned the sale of vaping products to anyone aged 18 and under.

The new rules, which bring the island into line with laws introduced in the UK in 2016, also makes it illegal for a person over the age of 18 to buy a minor any vaping product.

Further measures that will ban the public display or advertising of vaping products in any place on the island where under-18s are admitted will apply from September, according to media reports.

Cabinet Office Minister Kate Lord-Brennan said the measures were “an important move for the current and future health of young people.”
