A Norfolk council could ban passengers from vaping in taxis.
North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) will hold a public consultation next month on changes to its taxi licensing policy.
And potential updates to the rules include the banning of taxi passengers from using e-cigarettes and vaporisers.
A report discussed by the council's licensing committee on Monday, January 20 stated: "The driver must not smoke, or permit any passenger to smoke, in a licensed vehicle at any time.
"This includes the use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigs), personal vaporisers (PV) and electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), which are also prohibited."

Licensing officer Lara Clare said the six-week public consultation would be launched in February 2020.
