One third of working parents admitted they found it hard to find childcare during school holidays, a survey for Good Morning Britain found.
Some 33% of the 900 parents quizzed by OnePoll said they found it tricky to find a carer competent enough to look after their children while school was out.
Parents were recently revealed to be forced to shell out more than £100 a week to keep a child occupied during summer holidays.
In Britain the average cost of one week's holiday childcare is £114.51, with the South East of England the mot expensive at £140.88.
