On Thursday, Associate Health Minister Ayesha Verrall announced a radical and world-leading plan to ban tobacco sales to a generation, as well as lower the nicotine level in all tobacco products and drastically reduce number of places that can sell them, through the new Smokefree 2025 action plan.

"I've attached some pics of our gorgeous puss Rusty aka Moomoo , Gingakat, Annoying Orange, Garfield, Garfy, Rustburger...Rusty is about 12 and a half years old and definitely rules our household...She has never spent a night outdoors and can be found during the day snoozing in the most unexpected spots. She is totally ginger which apparently is unusual for a girl? We adore her 🧡😻."
