Lily Allen facing smoking investigation over Liverpool gig

Singer was seen smoking during Echo Arena show

Lily Allen is the subject of an investigation by Liverpool City Council over whether she was smoking during her gig at the Liverpool Echo Arena last Wednesday (December 9).

The council heard that the singer had allegedly sparked up during her gig due to reports from local media and they are liasing with the venue staff as part of the enquiry, reports BBC News.

A spokesperson for the council explained that if Allen had indeed smoked during the show she would be in breach of workplace legislation. She and the venue could face a fine.

The council has appealed to anyone who saw her smoking on stage to get in touch with them to help the investigation. Allen‘s spokesperson said she wouldn’t be commenting on the issue.
