Dad loses legal battle over term-time holidays
A father has lost a landmark legal battle over being fined for taking his daughter on holiday during school term-time.
The High Court had earlier ruled in Jon Platt's favour, saying he was not acting unlawfully by taking his daughter out of school for a family trip to Florida.
But education chiefs appealed to the Supreme Court, and five judges have unanimously allowed the appeal.
The case will now go back to the magistrates court.
