FOR FUN: FATHER CHRISTMAS SPOTTED AT NEW DEVELOPMENT ON RECCE FOR CHRISTMAS DELIVERIES

VIDEO: CCTV has picked up an unusual visitor to the new Barratt Homes development on the Isle of Wight recently.

“This is definitely the most interesting visitor we have seen on our CCTV footage and we’re making sure all the children in our new homes know that Father Christmas definitely knows their new address.

“We’re also putting up Santa Stop Here flags and signs to guide Father Christmas into the development on Christmas Eve.”

Santa will travel an estimated 510million km on Christmas Eve, flying at around 10million kph in order to make the 233million stops on his list. His first stop is the Republic of Kiribati in the Pacific Ocean and, according to NORAD, which is running its popular online Santa tracker, he will make his way west around the world before arriving in the UK.
