Police report women after videos of toddler vaping shared online

Two women have been reported to Scotland’s prosecution service over videos shared online of a toddler vaping.

In one clip seen by the Daily Record, believed to have been filmed in East Ayrshire, a young blonde-haired girl is recorded inhaling from a pink vape as adults watch.

Another video shows the youngster coughing after using the vape.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said two women, both 19, are now the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal.

The force added: “The child is safe and well.”

The incident was reported to East Ayrshire Council social work.

The local authority said: “We would not wish to comment on an individual case due to their right to confidentiality, but all concerns raised have been followed up.”

Siobhian Brown, MSP for Ayr, said she was “shocked” by the footage.

Ms Brown, who is also Scotland’s community safety minister, said: “I don’t think anybody watching this footage would find it ‘funny’ or ‘entertaining’ but most would be horrified at the footage.

“Vapes are not harmless and contain nicotine and dangerous toxins that could damage young developing lungs.

“I would hope this is an isolated incident and most responsible parents would know the dangers involved.

“I have had concerns for several years with the increase of youth vaping especially with the attractive different flavours and the accessibility of disposable vapes. The Scottish government is bringing in welcome legislation to ban disposable vapes next year.”
