A video of a toddler smoking a cigarette in China has caused outrage online.

The clip shows a boy of about two or three dragging on the cigarette as passers-by laugh.

At no point does anyone try and take it off him and one woman, possibly his mother, just tells him off.

The video, posted on Live Leak, attracted numerous comments expressing concern about the child.

One said: "Just trying to mimic adults.

"Don’t smoke in front of/around children."
