A four-year-old girl was left broken hearted by Father Christmas after he told her she was on the naughty list.

Brooke Rarity had met Santa on the Coca-Cola truck in Lindsayfield, South Lanarkshire.

Her mum Kellie, 32, told the Mirror her little girl was excited to be meeting Father Christmas, and was going to ask him for "anything pink".

But Brooke was left in tears when Santa reportedly told her: "I recognise you. Are you Brooke? I hear you're on the Naughty List."

Mum-of-three Kellie said: "Whoever this Santa is he's definitely in the wrong job. He had absolutely no Christmas cheer at all. Brooke was heartbroken. She was really teary all day and she kept asking if she wasn't getting any presents.

"She even told her pals at nursery about it the next day."

Coca-Cola said: "We are aware of a complaint made by a parent during the truck's visit to Lindsayfield."
