Workers in Britain are giving up millions of days in holidays, with few being paid in lieu of lost days, according to a report.

A survey of more than 1,000 employees by Post Office Travel Money found that only half took all the leave they were due last year. Words: PA

Workers still have to take an average of seven days in the current holiday year, with only one in 10 saying their employer will pay them if they do not use all their leave.

Almost one in five said they were too busy to take time off, while one in six said their employer made it difficult for them to take their full entitlement.

Workers whose holiday year runs to December still have an average of 5.5 days leave due, the research showed.
