The number of parents fined for taking children out of school during term-time has soared by nearly 400 per cent in Lancashire.

Nearly 1,000 fines were served on Lancashire parents who took their children out of school without permission in the first three months of the academic year, which began in September.

The same period in the previous year saw just 240 notices issued.
