Birkenhead soldier dad returns to family as Santa

A family's visit from Santa turned into an emotional homecoming for their father, who was away with the Army and not expected home in time for Christmas.

Jenny Allo, of Birkenhead, Merseyside, captured the moment on video and it has now been viewed more than seven million times on Facebook.

Her soldier husband Danny was not due to come home for another four months, but a late change of plan made for a special festive surprise for their children.
