Hello, welcome to the programme Coming up tonight, the demand for

:00:00.:00:11.

more police on the streets following the murder of this teenager in

:00:12.:00:16.

Bedford and the community worker calling for a change. The community

:00:17.:00:21.

needs to think positively rather than saying Midland Road is a bad

:00:22.:00:26.

area and unsafe, we need to get together and make a difference. The

:00:27.:00:30.

row over the cost of getting away from it all in the school holidays

:00:31.:00:33.

and the mother who wants it raised in Parliament.

:00:34.:00:39.

And we will be looking at stopping flooding downstream.

:00:40.:00:43.

And the gymnast about to go back to the country of his birth to try to

:00:44.:00:49.

make it to reopen. `` to Rio de Janeiro. Hello. First tonight, the

:00:50.:00:58.

demand for more police on the beat after a teenager was murdered in

:00:59.:01:02.

Bedford at the weekend. Isaac Stone was stabbed to death in the Midland

:01:03.:01:05.

Road area on Sunday evening. Residents say crime and anti`social

:01:06.:01:10.

behaviour are rife. And tonight they're meeting with the local

:01:11.:01:13.

Police and Crime Commissioner to discuss their concerns.

:01:14.:01:20.

The murder of a teenager is difficult for any community to face.

:01:21.:01:25.

Redford's Midland Road is no exception. On Saturday, 19`year`old

:01:26.:01:29.

Isaacs Dome was stabbed to death here. The belief they at the

:01:30.:01:35.

teenager was deliberately targeted. The chair of the local residents

:01:36.:01:38.

Association told me that the community had been left shocked It

:01:39.:01:44.

has caused great sadness for money, great upset, and I think great fear

:01:45.:01:51.

and concern. Concern over why it has happened and what the causes are,

:01:52.:01:56.

and I'll likely to be further ramifications? Of course, this

:01:57.:02:02.

murder has left many people in the middle and Road area concerned that

:02:03.:02:05.

there is a gang problem here, but many of this area have little to do

:02:06.:02:12.

with young people and gangs. `` in the Midland Road area. The Midland

:02:13.:02:17.

Road area has long suffered from anti`social behaviour including

:02:18.:02:22.

drug`taking and street drinking Tonight, the local residents

:02:23.:02:24.

Association will call for more policing when they meet with the

:02:25.:02:28.

local Police and Crime Commissioner. Not everyone seems concerned. There

:02:29.:02:34.

are issues, but it is like anyone else at the end of the day. I would

:02:35.:02:41.

not walk around alone at night. I have lived all my life and I have no

:02:42.:02:47.

row problem. This woman says that teenagers are often wrongly blamed

:02:48.:02:52.

for problems, she says she is saddened by the murder but it is an

:02:53.:02:57.

isolated situation and the community needs to pull together. We need to

:02:58.:03:02.

act upon it so it does not happen again. We have the resources

:03:03.:03:06.

available. The community needs to be positive rather than say that

:03:07.:03:09.

Midland Road is a bad area and unsafe. We need to get together to

:03:10.:03:18.

make a difference. The police and the local authorities have said they

:03:19.:03:20.

made great strides in cleaning up the area, but the understand the

:03:21.:03:23.

concerns of residents are concerns that have only been heightened by

:03:24.:03:27.

the murder of eyes that stone. `` by the murder of Eisenach.

:03:28.:03:31.

Earlier I spoke to Chief Inspector Julian Frost and put it to him that

:03:32.:03:35.

some residents have called Midland Road a "no`go area".

:03:36.:03:41.

No, that is completely untrue. The police station is in the Midland

:03:42.:03:45.

Road area itself, so no, I, myself live around 200 metres just outside

:03:46.:03:51.

the area covered by the Midland Road residents Association, so it is not

:03:52.:03:58.

a description or ignite at all. We are regularly there, we have PCSO is

:03:59.:04:02.

out there, they live in that area, so a no`go area is about the

:04:03.:04:06.

furthest I could possibly imagine from the area. Some people have

:04:07.:04:13.

spoken about intimidation, violence, lawlessness, a place they say were

:04:14.:04:17.

crime and anti`social behaviour are rife? Like many areas, Midland Road

:04:18.:04:25.

does have its issues, but certainly, that is not a description that I

:04:26.:04:29.

recognise of the area that I work and live in. It has issues and we

:04:30.:04:36.

are seeking to address them. You can understand why following the murder

:04:37.:04:39.

at the weekend, people want more reassurance and they actually want

:04:40.:04:45.

to see more police on the beat is Mac `` on the beat. Yes, we have got

:04:46.:04:53.

police talking to people, reassuring people, the community and people

:04:54.:04:57.

passing through, and looking for information. We have got additional

:04:58.:05:01.

police, over and above the money we would have for the night`time

:05:02.:05:05.

economy anyway, who will be working with me and talking to the people in

:05:06.:05:08.

Midland Road and providing reassurance to show we are serious

:05:09.:05:12.

about happened last weekend in serious about supporting the

:05:13.:05:15.

community in the Midland Road area. I know that your meeting with people

:05:16.:05:20.

tonight, what would be your main message? Firstly, we are determined

:05:21.:05:26.

that we bring the people that have taken this man's life to justice and

:05:27.:05:30.

secondly, that we will continue with the work we're doing alongside them

:05:31.:05:33.

and our partners to make Midland Road a safer place and a nicer place

:05:34.:05:44.

to live. Thank you. A family from Royston returned home

:05:45.:05:48.

after a family holiday to find a car had reversed into their kitchen

:05:49.:05:51.

completely demolishing one wall Emergency services and gas engineers

:05:52.:05:54.

had to evacuate the street and make the area safe after the incident on

:05:55.:05:57.

Saturday. No one was injured. The owners, Josie and Tony Poole, had

:05:58.:06:01.

only moved into the property five months ago. They're now waiting for

:06:02.:06:08.

insurers to inspect the damage. The kitchen is used a lot, the

:06:09.:06:11.

grandchildren sit here and do their homework. It could have been so much

:06:12.:06:19.

worse. But thankfully nobody has been hurt. Not seriously anyway It

:06:20.:06:23.

is just the damage to the property. We have only been here five months,

:06:24.:06:28.

we had done it all up, and we want it back together again as soon as

:06:29.:06:30.

possible. Next tonight, the claim that holiday

:06:31.:06:33.

companies rip off consumers with holiday prices during the school

:06:34.:06:43.

holidays. In a moment we will speak to companies representing the travel

:06:44.:06:48.

industry, but first, this report. Outside the school gates, it is what

:06:49.:06:52.

parents are talking about across the region, pay school holiday prices

:06:53.:06:59.

are face paying a fine. We need to follow the school policy, but we

:07:00.:07:02.

should not be penalised because we have children at school. I have to

:07:03.:07:07.

go to Thailand to visit my wife if I wished during the holidays it

:07:08.:07:13.

would cost ?3500 for my children and myself. It is terrible. It is greed,

:07:14.:07:19.

commercialisation gone mad, it encourages terrible behaviour. The

:07:20.:07:25.

children miss out. The new rules mean that classes can only be missed

:07:26.:07:31.

in exceptional circumstances. The Department for Education says that

:07:32.:07:34.

this stops a valuable learning times being lost but it means that

:07:35.:07:38.

holidays had to be taken when prices tend to be more expensive. This

:07:39.:07:44.

woman has collected nearly 150, 00 signatures, and her petition is

:07:45.:07:47.

calling for prices to be cut in school holiday. She started it after

:07:48.:07:56.

taking a break at Center Parcs. I tried to book the same apartment who

:07:57.:07:58.

had previously. Basically it was ?1000 more expensive than had I gone

:07:59.:08:03.

a week before. Center Parcs will open the newest development in the

:08:04.:08:08.

summer at Headford. The prices are set by the market, says the Chief

:08:09.:08:12.

Executive. We might make a profit in the peak times, but we have to in

:08:13.:08:16.

peak times, because we have to achieve a level of revenue across

:08:17.:08:21.

the year which allows us to reinvest in the business to improve the

:08:22.:08:23.

quality for the guests that come back every year. That is what they

:08:24.:08:29.

expect and that is what we do. Take a holiday without the permission of

:08:30.:08:32.

the school and the parents could face an initial fine of ?60 per

:08:33.:08:36.

child. This travel agent in Bedford says they have seen a drop in family

:08:37.:08:45.

bookings in term time already. We have seen a deep crease of about

:08:46.:08:51.

13%. January is a weak time for booking summer holidays and we have

:08:52.:08:53.

seen people just not wanting to commit at the moment. `` we have

:08:54.:08:59.

seen a decrease. The school end of term time is fast approaching which

:09:00.:09:03.

means that this could see a rise in holiday prices.

:09:04.:09:13.

Do you have any sympathy for the parents of school`age children? Yes,

:09:14.:09:19.

we do, and it needs to be explained economic realities behind by prices

:09:20.:09:25.

increased during school holidays. It is all about supply and demand, in

:09:26.:09:28.

that when you see an increase in demand for it ever reason, school

:09:29.:09:32.

holidays being part of that reason, then prices will increase. If you

:09:33.:09:36.

look at when holidays are taken it is Christmas, Easter, July and

:09:37.:09:40.

August, and those are the busiest times of the year for the industry

:09:41.:09:44.

and prices constantly increase. If you look at foreign holidays, we are

:09:45.:09:49.

eating with the rest of Europe for hotel space, and if you are a

:09:50.:09:54.

hotelier in Spain and you have somebody wanting to book rooms in

:09:55.:09:58.

August, then that'll tell will put up the prices considerably. `` we

:09:59.:10:02.

are competing with the rest of Europe. You say supply and demand,

:10:03.:10:08.

parents that we spoke to say greed and commercialisation gone mad. That

:10:09.:10:13.

is quite wrong. In the British market, we have the cheapest foreign

:10:14.:10:17.

holidays in Europe, I can guarantee you that if you spoke to a parent

:10:18.:10:21.

and asked what they paged compare to what we charge, they pay rather

:10:22.:10:28.

more. `` what they paid. We have been saying this for decades to

:10:29.:10:31.

various governments, the issue for school holidays is the time of year

:10:32.:10:35.

when it is taken, when it is already very busy, so the prices will be

:10:36.:10:39.

higher, so we suggested the solution is to stagger the days when schools

:10:40.:10:43.

take holiday and not take them all at the same time. That may be one

:10:44.:10:49.

solution, another solution is perhaps capping the percentage rise

:10:50.:10:57.

in prices. That will not work, because if you talk about dealing

:10:58.:11:00.

with a foreign hotelier, if you can only pay them a certain amount,

:11:01.:11:04.

there will simply say, sorry, we will sell those rooms to somebody

:11:05.:11:09.

else, so it is more about changing the date when the school takes the

:11:10.:11:13.

holidays, giving them the option to have a summer break abroad in June,

:11:14.:11:17.

September and the demand is a lot lower and the prices are lower. It

:11:18.:11:22.

is not about artificially capping prices, that will not work. We'd

:11:23.:11:30.

love to hear what you think. You can get in touch by phone. Or send us an

:11:31.:11:34.

email.There's Facebook and Twitter too. And we'll be looking at some of

:11:35.:11:37.

your comments later in the programme.

:11:38.:11:39.

Police in Cambridgeshire are hunting a gang who raided a restaurant

:11:40.:11:42.

dressed in camouflage onesies. It happened on December the 27th at the

:11:43.:11:46.

Glinton McDonalds. Three of the gang were caught on CCTV. Staff were

:11:47.:11:49.

shaken but unharmed. The police are appealing for information.

:11:50.:11:56.

That is all from us, we can go Essex. In June, Ashton Rybak will be

:11:57.:12:00.

up again. `` Ash Dieback. The woods are undergoing a huge and unwelcome

:12:01.:12:02.

change. Still to come, the girl who can now

:12:03.:12:15.

eat five peanuts a day after researchers in Cambridge cure to

:12:16.:12:20.

allergy. And a gymnast swapping the union Jack for the colours of South

:12:21.:12:21.

Africa. After months and months of rain,

:12:22.:12:27.

most of our rivers are full and, of course, that means the risk of

:12:28.:12:31.

flooding is always there. Which is why experts are trying to

:12:32.:12:35.

find a way of cutting the risk .In Norfolk, they are slowing down the

:12:36.:12:39.

flow of a river upstream, to stop flooding further

:12:40.:12:44.

this river as it nears the sea. Like so many rivers, it is boxed in by

:12:45.:12:51.

man`made flood banks. But miles upstream, a clock is being turned

:12:52.:12:56.

back. Trees are being felled, this may look like a mess but it has a

:12:57.:13:04.

purpose. We are building low`lying structures along the edge of the

:13:05.:13:08.

river, designed to narrow the stream, to make it more bending, it

:13:09.:13:12.

has been straightened over the years. We are putting the curves

:13:13.:13:16.

back in the riffraff, and every structure where we felled trees will

:13:17.:13:21.

be trapping silt. The red line on this photograph shows the current

:13:22.:13:26.

straightened course, the plan is to reverted to the way veep blue course

:13:27.:13:30.

of over nearly 200 years ago. Over time, these areas of timber will

:13:31.:13:35.

patch the silt, and you will not be able to see it at all, there will be

:13:36.:13:42.

a bank here great for wildlife. And at times of intense flow, the river

:13:43.:13:49.

will flow outside its channel, meaning less flooding downstream.

:13:50.:13:53.

Aquatic life could benefit, the project is being backed by

:13:54.:13:55.

landowners, the Environment Agency and the Norfolk Rivers trust. You

:13:56.:14:01.

can see the way the river is bouncing from site to site, that

:14:02.:14:04.

will become a self`perpetuating system. The river wants to do that.

:14:05.:14:13.

Could this reduce the risk of the devastation being witnessed in

:14:14.:14:17.

Somerset? Perhaps. The idea is now being tried elsewhere. We have a

:14:18.:14:22.

really good example in Norfolk where over the last couple of years, we

:14:23.:14:26.

have introduced a strategy of trying to reinstate the river act to its

:14:27.:14:30.

natural habitat. In doing that, by increasing flows in the raw `` in

:14:31.:14:35.

the water course and making it more self`sustaining, it stops the silt

:14:36.:14:41.

build`up. Getting the river back to its original course will take years,

:14:42.:14:46.

but those behind the project say everyone will benefit.

:14:47.:15:01.

As we have heard today, researchers at Addenbrooke's Hospital in

:15:02.:15:03.

Cambridge have made a breakthrough in the treatment of one of our

:15:04.:15:06.

commonest allergies, to peanuts. One of the patients who was taking

:15:07.:15:10.

part in the trial is 11`year`old Lena Barden, who lives in Histon.

:15:11.:15:14.

From the age of two, she has had a severe reaction to eating peanuts

:15:15.:15:18.

and was picked to take part in the research at Addenbrook's. She was

:15:19.:15:21.

fed a tiny dose of nuts over a four`month period. At the end, she

:15:22.:15:25.

could safely eat five whole peanuts a day.

:15:26.:15:27.

Lena and her mum Diana are at home in Histon now. The first time you

:15:28.:15:32.

notice this reaction, what happened? She was just over two and we had

:15:33.:15:35.

been out for the day and my mother and I were having a drink and she

:15:36.:15:41.

broke a bit of the biscuit and she spat out the peanuts, which probably

:15:42.:15:47.

saved her life because that meant the reaction came on much slower

:15:48.:15:51.

than it would have done. So over the next couple of hours, she became

:15:52.:15:59.

more and more upset and coughing. Eventually, she was struggling for

:16:00.:16:04.

breath. Lena, down the years, what have you most missed eating?

:16:05.:16:13.

Probably doughnuts. You can need those now? Yes, I had my first about

:16:14.:16:22.

a year ago. What has it been like for you, presumably you go to

:16:23.:16:26.

parties and to friend and you could not eat what they were eating? ``

:16:27.:16:32.

friends. It was quite annoying because whenever my friend had a

:16:33.:16:37.

party, my mother had to read every label in the House. Seeing if

:16:38.:16:40.

anything had anything to do with peanuts, it was quite frustrating.

:16:41.:16:46.

Whenever I go out with my friends, it used to be annoying because I had

:16:47.:16:52.

to read every label. She has been very good about it but it has been

:16:53.:16:57.

difficult for you as well? Yes, I have to say, Lena has had to

:16:58.:17:02.

grow up much faster than her friends and she has had to read labels when

:17:03.:17:06.

I was not around. It has been very hard, we never had allergies in our

:17:07.:17:15.

family. I was weaned on peanuts, my family are American. It has been

:17:16.:17:21.

quite a lesson. So she has to eat five peanuts every day now, it keeps

:17:22.:17:26.

everything going. But you do not like peanuts, do you, Lena? I

:17:27.:17:33.

absolutely hate them and they taste disgusting.

:17:34.:17:39.

It is quite a struggle. Thank you, both of you.

:17:40.:17:42.

Well, from ground`breaking research at one of our hospitals to high`tech

:17:43.:17:45.

innovation at another. Today, surgeons in Ipswich used a

:17:46.:17:48.

robotic camera to beam live pictures from an operation to a team 800

:17:49.:17:53.

miles away in France. It is a first for the UK, and the French

:17:54.:17:56.

President, Francois Hollande, was one of the people watching.

:17:57.:18:03.

We are inside the simulation room at Ipswich Hospital, watching gave very

:18:04.:18:07.

real gall bladder operation underway in a theatre. That is where they are

:18:08.:18:16.

putting the cannula. Into the doctor that comes from the gall bladder.

:18:17.:18:20.

Access comes from a robotic camera and we are not the only ones. The

:18:21.:18:27.

images are fed live to the European Institute of tele` surgery in

:18:28.:18:31.

Strasbourg. Today playing host to a very important visit from Francois

:18:32.:18:37.

Hollande, taking a presidential look at the pioneering pictures. The

:18:38.:18:39.

Strasbourg team world leaders and can used the link `` can use the

:18:40.:18:44.

link to give training and guidance to enhance a surgeon 's knowledge.

:18:45.:18:48.

From Victorian times, how things have changed? ``! It did not become

:18:49.:18:56.

a good idea because of infection. This allows us to teach the large

:18:57.:19:00.

numbers of people without having them in the operating theatre. The

:19:01.:19:04.

camera costs around ?70,000, the link especially encrypted to keep

:19:05.:19:10.

data safe. What do you see is the potential for this technology in the

:19:11.:19:17.

NHS? We will bring in experts in their field, new techniques, and

:19:18.:19:23.

improve the surgery and the result. The project is part of a wider drive

:19:24.:19:26.

to develop excellence here. This new training area with pretend patient

:19:27.:19:31.

mannequins which cost around 50,000 pounds each opens soon. Doing things

:19:32.:19:39.

like this will attract the best of the best optimistic Ipswich. And I

:19:40.:19:42.

considered the people that work in this hospital to be the best of the

:19:43.:19:49.

best. `` into Ipswich. I think we can achieve greater things. They

:19:50.:19:54.

have high hopes for the future and this high`tech French connection is

:19:55.:19:57.

just the start. For almost any sportsman or woman,

:19:58.:20:01.

the best thing you can ever do is to represent your country. Which is why

:20:02.:20:05.

one young gymnast from Cambridgeshire has made a very

:20:06.:20:08.

important decision. Cameron Mackenzie has competed for

:20:09.:20:11.

Britain and helped the team to win the European Junior Championships.

:20:12.:20:16.

But he was born in South Africa and now he has decided to go back, to

:20:17.:20:20.

try to become the African champion. That would open the door to the

:20:21.:20:25.

Olympics in Rio. It is time for Cameron McKenzie to

:20:26.:20:32.

leave a place he has called home for 11 years. Mum and dad help pack to

:20:33.:20:35.

begin a new journey under a new flag. He has been very proud to

:20:36.:20:41.

represent Great Britain and when he has stood on the podium with the

:20:42.:20:46.

anthem, he has been proud. But it would add to his experience as a

:20:47.:20:49.

person to have the additional privilege of standing there for his

:20:50.:20:58.

country of birth. He has trained here in Huntingdon since the age of

:20:59.:21:02.

nine but he has moved back to the country of his birth, South Africa,

:21:03.:21:07.

to achieve an Olympic dream. I have done a lot of national and

:21:08.:21:10.

international competitions for Great Britain, but to be an individual

:21:11.:21:14.

champion of a continent, that is a step up to another level. His first

:21:15.:21:21.

job is to get in shape for the African Championships at the end of

:21:22.:21:25.

March. If he wins that and becomes King of that continent, it is all

:21:26.:21:29.

systems go on the road to Rio. Being the best gymnast in Africa, with a

:21:30.:21:36.

population of a billion, would open up big sponsorship opportunities,

:21:37.:21:40.

not possible in Britain. He has competed many times under the union

:21:41.:21:45.

flag, winning junior team Gold at the European Championships four

:21:46.:21:48.

years ago. Do you feel English or South African? I would say I feel

:21:49.:21:54.

more South African. I did a competition for South Africa in 2010

:21:55.:21:58.

and I was competing for Great Britain, and I won it. I remember

:21:59.:22:03.

standing on the podium with the British uncomplaining and I thought,

:22:04.:22:08.

it does not quite feel right. The gymnastics world is quite a

:22:09.:22:12.

close`knit family and it does not matter whether you represent Japan,

:22:13.:22:15.

Great Britain, South Africa, America, when that gymnast performs

:22:16.:22:21.

an excellent routine, everybody smiles and applauds and appreciates

:22:22.:22:28.

what that gymnast has done. How proud will you be when the South

:22:29.:22:31.

African flag gets raised, hopefully, in a many, `` in one of these

:22:32.:22:36.

competitions? Very proud, if somebody else is standing up and the

:22:37.:22:42.

South African anthem is playing, I get proud, so it will be a special

:22:43.:22:49.

moment. He has seen the contribution Louis Smith has made and he wants to

:22:50.:22:52.

provide the same spark for South Africa, they have not sent a gymnast

:22:53.:22:59.

to the Olympics since 1954. I could be looking at the next! `` they

:23:00.:23:03.

could be. Earlier, we asked for your views on

:23:04.:23:07.

a subject that is controversial, the cost of going on holiday in the

:23:08.:23:10.

school holidays. A mother from Essex has launched a Downing Street

:23:11.:23:13.

petition over the issue. Jenny Kirk is in the newsroom and she has been

:23:14.:23:21.

looking at what you have had to say. It looks like we cannot get the

:23:22.:23:24.

sound. We will go back to her if we can. Whether first. `` the weather.

:23:25.:23:34.

More rain this month. Today, we have had nuisance rain, a lot of cloud

:23:35.:23:42.

across the region. Showery rain and expect more of those this evening

:23:43.:23:47.

and overnight. By the end of the night, it is largely dry with clear

:23:48.:23:52.

spells developing, turning misty and a risk of ground frost as

:23:53.:23:55.

temperatures drop to around two Celsius. Into tomorrow, it does not

:23:56.:24:02.

look like a bad day in the East. Mainly dry, but later, wet and windy

:24:03.:24:08.

weather. This is what is coming. A low present `` a low pressure

:24:09.:24:13.

weather system from the Atlantic, bringing a lot of rain. Expect a dry

:24:14.:24:19.

morning, perhaps bright spells across the East. Maybe an isolated

:24:20.:24:23.

shower, but largely dry. Increasingly cloudy. The signal this

:24:24.:24:29.

weather front is on its way will be the wind speed. It is possible

:24:30.:24:34.

through the evening that those costs will be around 40 mph. `` gusts. Six

:24:35.:24:43.

or seven degrees as the high, the rain will turn persistent and heavy

:24:44.:24:46.

through the night. Much of it should be out of the way by Saturday. This

:24:47.:24:51.

is the pressure pattern for Saturday and into Sunday. Low pressure close

:24:52.:24:59.

by, so strong winds for Saturday. It will stay dry. Sunday is the better

:25:00.:25:03.

day as winds start to ease. This rain will come. Not a bad day for

:25:04.:25:10.

Saturday. Although it will be quite windy. We should state dry, isolated

:25:11.:25:17.

showers possible, but sunny spells, highs of around seven Celsius. ``

:25:18.:25:21.

stay dry. Into Sunday, more present `` pleasant. Largely dry by Monday,

:25:22.:25:25.

winds picking up. Back to Jenny. Can you hear me?

:25:26.:25:39.

Superb! We have been busy. A lot of you

:25:40.:25:45.

getting in touch. Some about the importance of a family holiday, this

:25:46.:25:50.

woman says, we cannot go on holiday, we cannot afford school holiday

:25:51.:25:54.

prices and we cannot afford a fine. Mike kids all living `` losing out

:25:55.:26:01.

on cultural education. Susie says, this is not just about families, as

:26:02.:26:05.

a person without kids, I cannot afford a holiday during school

:26:06.:26:06.

holidays. The elsewhere `` the outrageous

:26:07.:26:12.

prices affect everyone. Mary says, common sense tells you increased

:26:13.:26:17.

demands mean prices go up like oil prices in cold weather.

:26:18.:26:22.

Tony says, it is simple supply and demand. Sally says, so what if you

:26:23.:26:29.

cannot have a holiday? Why does everybody think they are entitled?

:26:30.:26:33.

Is I will government going to tell Spain to drop prices? I do not

:26:34.:26:38.

excel. Melanie says, holidays have been robbing us blind for years, I

:26:39.:26:43.

have parents over a barrel and they know it.

:26:44.:26:45.

Jamie says that most holiday places in the UK only make their revenues

:26:46.:26:50.

seasonally and they have to raise prices is a five through the winter.

:26:51.:26:54.

Peter says, it will be recoverable for people to understand the charges

:26:55.:27:00.

at the height of season of fair and reasonable. Prices at term time a

:27:01.:27:06.

reduced bargain prices. Some of you have set any other form of

:27:07.:27:08.

discrimination would not be allowed, the UK holiday industry

:27:09.:27:14.

practices discrimination policies over holidays. Another viewer says,

:27:15.:27:21.

thank goodness ice cream sellers do not put up their prices during

:27:22.:27:25.

school holidays or we would all be in trouble. I could not agree more!

:27:26.:27:31.

Thank you for getting in touch. We have been busy! People make

:27:32.:27:35.

interesting point and it will remain controversial. That is all for this

:27:36.:27:37.

evening. Good night.
