More fined for in-term holidays

Between 2016 and 2017, 2,884 penalties were handed out to parents in the East Riding for not sending their children to school. The figure is said to be above the national average but a local spokesman for the National Association of Headteachers said many parents are willing to pay the £60 penalty if it means they can take advantage of cheaper holiday deals.
