Today in England and Wales the law has changed making it illegal for anyone under the age of 18-year-olds to go on tanning beds.

 This new law extends to include gyms, hotels and salons. Any businesses that are caught breaking this new law could be fined up to £20,000.  The law has been passed to protect the health of under-18s and reduce the chance of skin cancer.

Danielle Middleton talked to Spokeswomen of the Sunbed Association Kathy Banks to see how this will affect the tanning business.
