PAUL KEAVENY has news of Jean Booth, known to tabloid readers as “e-cigarette grandma Jean Booth”.

“Heavy-smoker” Jean was in Manchester’s Wythenshawe Hospital for a hip operation when the oxygen supply she was using to ease her breathing caught fire. He head and face were badly burnt. She is “fighting for life”.

Terrible. Did the e-Gigs ‘blow her up’?

Further down the story we get facts:

“…an investigation tried to discover whether an e-cigarette found near her was responsible for the blaze.”

A relative adds:

“Now Jean is a smoker, don’t get me wrong. She’s been in and out of hospital for the past two years but she has never ever attempted to light a cigarette in there. She has never done that.”

Smoking tobacco is terrible for your health, but it’s better than being blown up.
