It is against the law to sell cigarettes to anyone under the age of 18. Trading Standards help to enforce the law by making attempted test purchases using under-age shoppers. We also control the location of cigarette vending machines.
If you are concerned that a trader is selling to people under the legal age please contact Citizens Advice Consumer Service.
If you are a trader and want some information regarding the sale of age-restricted goods, please contact Trading Standards.
