May Day, St George's Day and new bank holidays

Some people are celebrating May Day on Thursday, and many will be off work on Monday for the official bank holiday, while some are calling for extra days off, or shuffling the dates of existing holidays.

On the Daily Politics, Jo Coburn spoke to Oliver New from Left Unity, which is taking part in a May Day march, and Liberal Democrat MP Sir Bob Russell, who has called for St George's Day to be made a national holiday in England.
