(Reuters) – British tobacco firm Imperial Brands <IMB.L> said it was developing a vaping device with locking technology, amid restrictions by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration meant to prevent young people from using e-cigarettes.

The FDA on Thursday announced curbs on flavoured tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes popular among teenagers in an effort to prevent the rise of a new generation of nicotine addicts.
