HUNTINGDONSHIRE'S pubs, clubs, offices and shops are smoke-free, according to research carried out across the district.
More than three months after the introduction of the smoking ban, Huntingdonshire businesses are complying with the new legislation.
Environmental health staff from Huntingdonshire District Council visited 1,000 premises across the area and found all were complying with the laws.
Staff also found 99 per cent of businesses were displaying the correct signs.
Since the introduction of the legislation in July, just 14 complaints have been received and three written warnings issued for businesses failing to prevent smoking.
Councillor Deborah Reynolds, who is responsible for housing and health at HDC, said: "I would like to congratulate the council officers involved because much of the success is down to the excellent work carried out by them, and in particular the support given in advance of the ban, to help businesses be prepared."
