Real People - - CAUGHT RED-HANDED -

Like the kids song, when Santa got stuck on the statue, the po­lice be­gan to shout. Or, at least, they asked him po­litely to get down.

This guy spent two hours sit­ting on the back of Glas­gow’s iconic Duke of Welling­ton statue in De­cem­ber 2014.

Af­ter he re­fused to climb down, a fire crew turned up with a lad­der and he gave in.

He was ar­rested and given a £40 fixed-penalty fine be­fore be­ing let out of cus­tody.

We can’t quite work out why he per­formed the stunt. Per­haps he’d lost his rein­deer and was try­ing to hitch a lift on the horse? Ei­ther way, he lost some valu­able present-de­liv­er­ing time that year while he was sat be­hind the Duke!
