Santa goes to Wash­ing­ton

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

Wis­bech has many claims to fame. Now our neigh­bour in the east can add an­other one – it was re­spon­si­ble for the great­est AA traf­fic alert ever. It read: ‘Par­tially blocked and slow traf­fic due to a large in­flat­able Santa on road on B198 Cromwell Road both ways in Wis­bech.’

Peter­bor­ough taxi driver Muham­mad Fa­reed was caught in the traf­fic jam and­his video went global. He told how he spot­ted the mas­sive Santa com­ing loose from a gar­den (what’s wrong with a few fairy lights draped round a bush?).

The Wash­ing­ton Post’s Fredrick Kun­kle, re­ported: “A gi­ant in­flat­able Santa got loose and blocked traf­fic in both di­rec­tions of a Bri­tish road, snarling traf­fic for more than three hours and pleas­ing grinches ev­ery­where.’’ San­ta­gate! Eat your hearts out Wood­ward and Bern­stein.
