# Here comes Santa Claus

# Riding down Santa Claus Lane

#Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer

# Are pulling on the reins...

Just two

shopping days left till Christmas

and traffic is looking good

in the centre of town.

Victoria Embankment is moving

smoothly in both directions.

There does seem to be some sort

of hold up over Tower Bridge.

I can see queues

on all approaches to it.

There appears to be livestock.

No... It's reindeer.

Reindeer! I repeat, reindeer,

running wild over Tower Bridge.

# He's got a bag that is filled with toys

for the boys and girls again

# Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle

# What a beautiful sight

# Jump in bed, cover up your head

# Cos Santa Claus comes tonight


# Santa Claus comes tonight

Happy Days...

A surprising story today.

We have reports of reindeer

running loose on the streets of London.

# Here comes Santa Claus

# Riding down Santa Claus Lane

# He doesn't care

if you're rich or poor, boy

# He loves you just the same

# Santa knows that

we're God's children... #


Mobile phone.

One Rubik's cube.

Oh... Unsolved.

And one set of car keys.

Sign there.

- That your Tom, is it?

- Yeah, that was him two years ago.

- Takes after you.

- Well, let's hope not.

More now

on our top story

of the reindeer running loose

on the streets of London.

There have been sightings

as far west as Ealing Broadway.

No-one knows where they came from,

so let's just hope

they're not Santa's reindeer,

or there'll be a lot of disappointed

children this Christmas.

Hey, quick! We have to stop the train!

There are people on board!

- We can't. The brakes have failed.

- Well, we have to.

There's an old lady

stuck in the back seat!

An old lady? Oh, no!

But don't worry, she just made it out.

No, the old lady got really

mangled up. She's in a mess.

An old lady? Really?

Ah! My legs! I can't feel my legs!

Ah, but fortunately

there's an ambulance nearby.

Nee-nah! Nee-nah!

And it saves the old lady's life.

No, she's dead. She had a big cut

on her leg and bled out.

Well, I hope all this death

and destruction's making you hungry.

- Hello?

Hello. It's me.

Hang on.

Come on, Tom,

let's play something else.

- Are you out?

I'm out.

- I'm pleased for you.

- Yeah, I'm pleased for me too.

- How are you?

- I'm good.

Uh, so, listen, I was just wondering

if I could pop by later

and see Tom, if that's all right?

- No, today's not a good day.

- Ah, come on, Ali.

You can't just change the plans cos you

have something better to do tomorrow.

No, I haven't got anything better to do.

Well, we'll see you then. I've gotta go.

All right. Thank... Thank you.

Was that Dad?

- Yeah, that was Steve.

- Why didn't you let him come over?

Because you'll have more time

with him tomorrow.

- What if he doesn't come tomorrow?

- He will.

He won't if you're being horrible to him.


Just try and give him

the benefit of the doubt.

I'm just scared he's gonna build Tom up

with promises and then let him down.


deserves a second chance.

Steve's had about 12.

I know.

Let's just try and have

a nice Christmas.

Don't you like the fly?

Will you have a little grub?

Come in.

Mr Anderson, do take a seat.

No? Don't want a fly?

- Mince pie?

- Er, no, thank you.

Do you understand what my job is?

Yeah, it's to make sure that I don't

fall back into a life of crime.

Yeah. Hmm. It's also

to catch you when you do.

- And I will catch you.

- I'm not gonna do anything wrong.

- I'm sure you hear that all the time.

- All the time.

- But this time it's true.
