Pupils from Meridian High School gave a big thumbs down to smoking last week as part of Stoptober.

The You Don’t Look Cool campaign, run by the anti-smoking charity Gasp, aims to use positive peer pressure to discourage kids from picking up the habit.

Campaign organisers are hoping to visit as many schools in Croydon as possible over the month to convince teenagers that smoking is no longer considered cool.

A song recorded as part of the campaign attacks the tactics of tobacco companies with lyrics like “They’re targeting the kids, they don’t want anyone to live”.
