    The removal of cigarettes from public display is a step closer after MPs said vending machines should be banned and shops should keep stocks out of sight.
    MPs supported a backbench amendment to outlaw cigarette vending machines in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Scotland has its own separate bill.
    The vending machine amendment to the government's Health Bill was passed by the Commons without going to a vote.
    The bill passed its third reading and will now go before the House of Lords.
    The vending machine ban was proposed by the former Labour minister Ian McCartney, who said it would "change history".
