The Life Education Trust, an organisation that provides health education to young people, says young vapers are consuming as much nicotine as someone smoking a pack-and-a-half of cigarettes a day.

They say schools are crying out for help because they are dealing with young people with full-on dependency issues and it's becoming an epidemic.

Foundation chief executive Letitia Harding joined Francesca Rudkin.
