No Smoking signage

The smokefree legislation introduced in 2007 means that the buildings in which people work, relax and socialise should be free of smoke caused by tobacco.

The Health Act 2006 made it illegal to smoke in certain places in England. Smoking isn't allowed in any substantially enclosed workplace, public building or on public transport in the UK. Persons who permit smoking and those that smoke, commit criminal offences. It is also a legal requirement to display smokefree signs.
