Sunbed Bill Passes Another Hurdle

A bid to ban under 18s from tanning salons has cleared another hurdle, the Bill's passed through the Commons.

It was introduced because of fears youngsters are putting themselves at an increased risk of cancer by using sunbeds.

Unmanned sunbed shops and coin-operated machines would also be outlawed as part of the effort to prevent skin cancer cases.

Next it's going to be looked at by the House of Lords.
