Bristol becomes the first British city to become smoke-free by 2024

Bristol is predicted to be the first city in the UK to be completely smoke-free – with research suggesting that this could happen within the next six years.

The city is tipped to be the first place in the country to quit smoking by the year 2024, before York and Wokingham.

The area is one of only seven local authorities that are expected to become smoke-free within the next nine years.

One in nine Bristolians smoked in 2017, the most recent year for which data is available, but the prevalence of smoking decreased by nearly 10 percent between 2011 and 2017.
