Morecambe's family-of-24 The Radfords have taken to Instagram to explain why they've not been vlogging as much as they normally do.

Followers of parents Sue and Noel Radford and their kids have been curious as to why they hadn't posted any new videos to their YouTube channel for a couple of weeks, with fans saying they were really missing watching updates.

The family regularly post videos on to their social media accounts to give people an insight into their life - and usually post a new video at least every week.

However, fans became concerned when there were no updates for a couple of weeks last month - and asked the family on Instagram what was going on.

One person said: "Missing your vlogs but understand your busy, but there my fav x"

And now the family have explained why they've not been vlogging as much as usual - and it's a pretty simple answer.

They said on Instagram: "aww I know I’m sorry we haven’t vlogged for so long now we just don’t seem to have the time anymore"

In the last few weeks the family have been keeping busy with a trip to Scotland, where the family climbed up Arthur's Seat.

During the recent hot weather the family have also been enjoying BBQs in the garden which also has a bar and splashing around in their hot tub.

While tots Heidie and Ophelia have been enjoying their frog-shaped paddling pool which has been keeping them cool in the sun.

The family also celebrated Hallie's sixth birthday last week.

Sharing a photo of her opening up her gifts on Instagram, the family said: "A very happy 6th birthday to Hallie. I can't believe you're six our little rainbow"

But it looks like normal service is now resuming with the family sharing a vlog of Hallie's birthday and also of daughter Ellie doing a skydive.

Mum Sue said Ellie had been wanting to perform a skydive for years but had to wait until she was 16. The family cheered Ellie as she jumped from a plane that was 14,000ft in the air.

Afterwards, Sue said: "Ellie is absolutely buzzing after that sky dive."

She added: "It was just really good, she so enjoyed it. Definitely not for me."

But Noel said: "I'm quite tempted."
