In an article headlined ‘Drunk Santa & Helper Flung From Sleigh Face Drink Driving Charges’ provided to us by the Central European News Agency (CEN), a passer-by Zdzislaw Molodynski was quoted as saying Santa and his helper were drunk.

Mr Molodynski has since informed us that he did not make these comments, and we have removed the article and apologise for the inaccuracy. We are also happy to make clear that Santa and his helper did not face any charges.
