Saint Nicked? Santa's been confronted by the police at Stratford station

It's been a worrying day for those eagerly awaiting Saint Nick shimmying down their chimney this Christmas, after footage emerged showing Santa being accosted by police officers on a tube platform just over a week before the big day. 

The scenes sparked immense speculation over what could have caused the kerfuffle at Stratford station on Thursday evening. 

 

 Others were more concerned whether the incident could put Christmas under threat. 

 

 

 

But no need to fret folks, Christmas isn't cancelled.

Santa is still safely in the North Pole and the man posing as Mr Kringle around east London was not arrested after his dressing down by the Met.
