Father Christmas latest arrest in Savile investigations


The future of Christmas has been plunged into uncertainty after Father Christmas became the latest person to be arrested as part of the Jimmy Savile investigations.

Scotland Yard said officers had arrested a man in his 390s “on suspicion of sexual offences”, and had taken him to a central London police station.

Mr Christmas is the seventh person to be questioned as part of Operation Yewtree.

The news has come as a shock to the public who are still reeling from allegations made against Jimmy Savile, Stuart Hall and 3-2-1′s Dusty Bin.

“It seems that every day there are new developments,” said 42 year-old Karl Newman from Chepstow.

“These people form part of my childhood memories, so to find out that they have been noncing it up is quite shocking.”

“I remember sitting on Santa’s knee on several occasions when I was a child, and him telling me he would empty out the contents of his sack in my bedroom if I was a good boy now sends a shiver down my spine.”

Santa arrested

37 year-old Melanie Carter also recalled some of the things Mr Christmas had said to her when she visited him at the Pentagon Shopping Centre in Chatham in 1980.

“I remember commenting on his outfit and he said that if I wanted I could stroke his furry rim.”

“I’d also been worried that he wouldn’t be able to deliver presents to my house because I don’t have a chimney.”

“He said that it wasn’t a problem because he liked to enter by the back door anyway.”

“He also reassured me that the doll’s house I wanted wasn’t a problem and that the elves would have no problem knocking one out.”

“Truly haunting.”
