Santa to the rescue - Father Christmas helps pedestrian after tumble on icy pavement

When a poor pedestrian became the latest victim of the snow that blanketed the country at the weekend, little did they know who would come to the rescue.

The woman took a tumble on an icy pavement, dropping her shopping and no doubt hurting herself.

But as she struggled to get up, a passing car screeched to a halt and out hopped Santa himself.

The whole event was caught on camera by a fellow motorist who has now shared the rescue by the man in red.
