Will plain cigarette packaging deter children from smoking?

Around half a million children will die from smoking when they get older unless more is done to cut cigarette use. 

That's according to Cancer Research UK which estimates nearly 3 million children will become smokers as adults. 

The charity is insisting MPs back the introduction of plain cigarette packaging when they vote in a few weeks. 

George Butterworth from the charity explains more.
