Woman's Own - - YOUR MONEY -

Par­ents have been charged more than £151 mil­lion in the last year for be­ing late to pick up their chil­dren from nurs­eries, af­ter-school clubs and child­min­ders, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by Di­rect Line Life In­sur­ance.

The study found mums and dads were late for col­lec­tion on av­er­age three times in the past 12 months, typ­i­cally pay­ing a to­tal of £25.10 in fines each.

How­ever, it also found the fines var­ied con­sid­er­ably, with some providers charg­ing a flat fee of up to £50 for late col­lec­tions, while oth­ers billed at a rate of £1 per minute. Ouch!
