An Ilkeston doctor who opened an e-cigarette store next to his surgery in a bid to help smokers quit says it has been a big hit in the town.

Dr John Ashcroft, of The Old Station Surgery on Heanor Road, opened his shop, Dr Smokeless, last October in an empty solicitors’ office attached to the surgery.

Since then it has seen an increasing amount of interest, with the GP striving to persuade all of his patients who smoke to vaporise instead.
