THERE is no smoke and no fire but an e-cigarette is still a cigarette, says the Health Sciences Authority (HSA).

So far this year, it has smoked out 13 people for bringing in and selling the much-hyped e-cigarette, touted as a 'healthy' way to beat rising cigarette prices and a widening ban on smoking here.

Last year's numbers are unavailable as cases started appearing late last year.
