Families are being asked to switch off their computers, ipads and smartphones and take part in National Unplugging Day.

Parents and children are being asked to spend Sunday without any technology.

"It's the interactions that we often miss. I go home and my son is on his phone. I ask 'how's your day at school' and get 'urgh'.

"It's to encourage that dialogue which can be missed in society so I am looking forward to it
