MARTIN Lewis’ MoneySavingExpert is urging parents not to miss out on thousands of pounds of tax-free childcare. As part of the tax-free childcare scheme, you can get up to £500 every three months - up to £2,000 a year - for each of your children. For disabled children, the maximum amount you could get rises to £4,000. The scheme essentially works like a savings account where for every £8 you save towards childcare costs, the government tops up an extra £2. So if you put away £8,000 a year for one child, the government will give you £2,000 totally free.

GATWICK Airport is introducing new charges for anyone being dropped off at the North Terminal. All the passengers will face a £5 charge at the airport under the new plans. This will affect all vehicles, excluding blue badge holders, at North Terminal from March 8, when staying for up to 10 minutes.
