Tobacco smokers who also use "tank" e-cigarettes daily are more likely to kick the habit altogether than those who puff on "cigalike" models, a study has found.

Scientists at King's College London found that, at the one-year follow-up, more than a quarter of daily tank users (28pc) had quit smoking compared with 11pc of daily cigalike users - less than the 13pc who quit and who did not use an e-cigarette at all.

They said that while cigalikes resemble tobacco cigarettes, tank models look quite different from cigarettes and have containers that can be refilled with "e-liquid".
