A particular feature of modern life is walking through a white cloud of vapour from a stranger’s lungs. Yuk. But these ‘cloud chasers’ are only a small part of the vaping community, most of whom use a method which is much less visible, according to Craig Newbold, boss and founder of Sheffield-based Mirage.And while it is anti-social in the wrong environment, it’s not harmful like second-hand cigarette smoke, he states.And that is vaping’s success in a nutshell. It gives a hit of addictive nicotine without nasty tobacco, the “bringer of death to millions,” as Craig puts it.The practice of vaporising flavoured nicotine water is only about 12 years old in the UK, but – a bit like the old tobacconists – there’s now a vape shop on every corner.This huge and rapid expansion has been good for business – Mirage is one of the largest retailers in the country with 85 employees, 40 shops – 13 in Sheffield – hundreds of … [Read more...] about MADE IN SHEFFIELD: Vape firm Mirage’s success is no smokescreen

Plymouth will learn the fate of its House of Fraser department store on Friday when creditors vote on a plan which would see it shut forever. The 169-year company is asking creditors to approve a Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA) and if they do the store will close, along with 30 others in early 2019. If they don't accept the rescue plan the chain would most likely enter administration or liquidation with its boss saying there would be "instant collapse" with the entire chain putting up the shutters almost imediately. Meanwhile, rival Debenhams, which also has a flagship store in Plymouth, has issued another profit warning and is to press on with a plan which could see some stores shut and others lose floors as it battles to curtail costs. House of Fraser wants to close 31 of its 59 stores across the UK and Ireland as part of a rescue deal, with the potential loss of about 6,000 jobs. Plymouth’s flagship store is on the list, but Exeter’s is given a reprieve. But the rescue … [Read more...] about When will Plymouth’s House of Fraser store close?
Good morning and welcome to the Business Breakfast live blog for Wednesday, May 16. This blog brings you all the breaking business news from the North East, UK and beyond - basically anything and everything from the world of business. I'm Coreena Ford and I'm running the blog today and we start with the report into the Carillion collapse, which makes for eyewatering reading. The Parliamentary report lays bare the spectacular failure of the group in a “story of recklessness, hubris and greed”, which led to job losses and stalled construction projects here in the North East. We also have news from Paddy Power Betfair, Moss Bross, Burberry and Cineworld. As usual, I'll include reminders of some of our North East stories you may have missed.

A round up of this week’s letters to the Milton Keynes Citizen from our readers. MK Hospital saved my life I just want to thank all the staff from 999, the paramedics, A&E, resuss, and wards 1 and 16 for their time and dedication in saving my life. Whilst being pushed on the hospital bed through A&E the crowds were overwhelming as people couldn’t move. It was stifling with sick and injured people sitting on beds and sharing seats all through the main entrance to the exits. Whilst in ward 1 and ward 16 I saw how hectic it was for the doctors and nurses etc who were rushed off their feet trying to find beds for critical patients day and night, which was a total nightmare. I saw them working double shifts also doing other job roles that they shouldn’t be doing. They were very hands on and caring with patients, made us feel comfortable, and still managed to put on a smile even though you could see they looked exhausted. I spent one week in hospital although the … [Read more...] about ‘MK Hospital saved my life’ and ‘Idiots blocking charging points’ this week’s letters to the Milton Keynes Citizen
