A cheeky dad who took his son out of primary school for an unauthorised term-time holiday was hit with a £60 fine - and paid it using a bucketful of just one and two pence pieces. Paddy Forbes took his family - including six-year-old Tommy-Lee - on a week-long trip to Egypt in February without permission from the youngster's head teacher.

And after being hit with the fine a week after landing back in Swansea, south Wales, the 49-year-old came up with a novel way of settling his debt. He brought a bucketful of coppers to Swansea Civic Centre on Friday and boldly tipped the lot onto the counter in front of an unsuspecting council worker - before making a swift exit.
