Siblings' perfect school attendance

Three siblings have all finished their schooling without ever having a single day off.

Holly Ghent, 20, and her brother, Daniel, 18, and sister, Chloe, 16, from Bristol, each had a 100 per cent attendance record over a 12-year period spanning around 7,000 days.

They all attended Hanham High and Christchurch Primary School in Hanham. Their mother, Janet Ghent, said: "They seemed to like the atmosphere."
