Coronavirus: Father Christmas’ guide to a Covid safe Christmas

"Things are going to be a bit different, but that doesn't mean Christmas isn't happening"

That's the message from Santa Claus ahead of what is surely to be a festive season unlike any other.

Christmas lockdown rules will vary around the world but ministers in the UK are currently looking at how to relax coronavirus restrictions so families can celebrate together.

But in an interview with the BBC, Father Christmas answered questions from children at the High School of Glasgow’s Junior School about what they can do to stay safe this winter, and explains what he and the elves are doing to help keep everyone safe from Covid-19.
