Children and young people in Wales are almost twice as likely to try

:00:11.:00:15.

A study by Cardiff University found over 18% of 11 to 16 years olds

:00:16.:00:22.

The Welsh Government says the findings are "disappointing".

:00:23.:00:27.

So this is quite a common form of e-cigarette these days.

:00:28.:00:34.

Increasingly, e-cigarettes in general are becoming more common.

:00:35.:00:38.

Good news for this e-cig company in Swansea who operate

:00:39.:00:40.

We have a Challenge 25 policy where we train our staff

:00:41.:00:48.

to challenge anyone who looks under 25 and to ensure we are not

:00:49.:00:52.

We want people to trust us, we don't want to be selling to youths.

:00:53.:01:00.

But according to research by Cardiff University,

:01:01.:01:04.

more and more young people are experimenting with e-cigarettes.

:01:05.:01:08.

A survey of more than 32,000 children aged between 11 and 16

:01:09.:01:13.

showed that students were nearly twice as likely to have used

:01:14.:01:16.

e-cigarettes as compared to smoking tobacco.

:01:17.:01:21.

2.7% of those that took part said they used

:01:22.:01:23.

The Welsh Government had intended to ban the use of e-cigarettes

:01:24.:01:29.

That proposal failed and the plans have now been shelved

:01:30.:01:35.

but responding to this research, the Government said

:01:36.:01:37.

it is disappointing to see experimentation with e-cigarettes

:01:38.:01:40.

In a bid to stop e-cigarettes from appealing to children,

:01:41.:01:47.

health officials have already called for a ban on the sale

:01:48.:01:49.

of confectionery-like flavours for the devices.

:01:50.:01:52.

Irrespective of what we feel about e-cigarettes and their possible

:01:53.:01:55.

relationship to smoking, or in fact other drug use,

:01:56.:02:00.

it's actually not a good thing in and of itself and large numbers

:02:01.:02:03.

of young people using e-cigarettes on a regular basis we think

:02:04.:02:05.

is something we should be concerned about.

:02:06.:02:08.

It's a potential public health issue for an industry

:02:09.:02:10.

Former Labour leader Neil kinnock has criticised Jeremy Corbyn's

:02:11.:02:16.

handling of the Brexit vote, saying it's turned Tory

:02:17.:02:19.

divisions over Europe into a problem for Labour.

:02:20.:02:23.

He told the BBC's Sunday Politics Wales

:02:24.:02:24.

programme Mr Corbyn should've allowed a free vote

:02:25.:02:26.

More than 40 Labour MPs - eight from Wales -

:02:27.:02:32.

The Labour leader made a strategic error in not saying there should be

:02:33.:02:39.

a free vote so that members of Parliament could reflect the vote

:02:40.:02:44.

in the areas that they represent and then simultaneously a focus

:02:45.:02:49.

really hard on what the conditions of our departure are to be.

:02:50.:02:57.

:03:39.:03:39.

Football, and in the last few minutes Swansea have secured

:03:40.:03:47.

a much needed 2-0 win against Leicester City

:03:48.:03:49.

Meanwhile, yesterday in the Championship,

:03:50.:03:51.

Cardiff City earned a 2-0 victory away to Leeds United.

:03:52.:03:54.

And in the National League, Wrexham drew 1-1 against Dover Athletic.

:03:55.:04:01.

Rugby, and Wales coach Rob Howley says he was proud of his side's

:04:02.:04:04.

performance against England in the six nations,

:04:05.:04:06.

up until the visitors grabbed victory in the closing minutes.

:04:07.:04:10.

A late try meant England claimed a 21-16 win in Cardiff.

:04:11.:04:14.

It was a penalty apiece after 17 minutes but it was England

:04:26.:04:28.

who scored the first try, Ben Youngs crossing the line.

:04:34.:04:36.

Wales took a five point lead at the break.

:04:37.:04:43.

In the second half, England pushed the Wales defence

:04:44.:04:45.

but Dan Biggar intervened, denying England the points.

:04:46.:04:55.

As the clock ticked on, still tight but it looked

:04:56.:04:59.

like Wales could do it, but with just over four minutes

:05:00.:05:01.

to go, after a poor clearing kick from Jonathan Davies,

:05:02.:05:04.

Elliot Daly accelerated past Alex Cuthbert to put England ahead.

:05:05.:05:12.

We had the opportunities and we played some good stuff,

:05:13.:05:18.

unfortunately the last ten minutes depicts in terms of the result

:05:19.:05:22.

and unfortunately our composure sort of let us down.

:05:23.:05:27.

England celebrated stretching their winning run to 16 matches
