A campaigner launching a legal bid for a judicial review of Michael Gove's ban on term-time holidays has told Good Morning Britain travel "adds to her children's education".
Natalie Bamford from Parents Want a Say (PWAS) accused the Government of "interfering too much" in decisions which should be up to the parents.
She also denied claims she was sacrificing her children's education for a family holiday: "If anything we're adding to our children's education. I feel that travel is an added bonus to their education."
