A store in Irvine was found to have more than 800 illegal disposable vape products during an inspection.

Police Scotland confirmed that 839 illegal disposable vape products were taken from one store – which has not named.

Some of the e-cigarettes are advertised to contain 9,000 puffs – 15 times the UK’s 600-puff limit – and the nicotine equivalent of about 720 cigarettes.

In addition, officers were also checking shops’ age verification processes, amid rising concern for the increase in young people reportedly acquiring vape products.

It is the fourth time this year the force has confirmed the seizure of products from Irvine shops.
