The number of people referring themselves to a service aimed at helping them stop smoking has increased rapidly since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

In 2020, a total of 1,242 people applied to the Northamptonshire Stop Smoking Service - an increase of 200% on the previous year.

Richard Holley, from the service, said the increase was "very positive".

Ben Williams, who quit smoking after 30 years, said he felt much better.
