Southend mother campaigns to end holidays 'rip-off'
A mother fighting to stop what she calls "rip-off" holiday prices during the school holidays has more than 150,000 signatures on a petition she set up on the Downing Street website.
Mother-of-two Donna Thresher, from Southend in Essex, began her campaign in March 2013 when she found that a holiday at Centre Parcs would cost nearly four times more than a term-time break.
Mrs Thresher hopes her petition will trigger a debate in parliament.
