Thieves steal reindeers and Santa
Four reindeers, a sleigh and a Father Christmas figure have been stolen from a garden shed in Cumbria.

Raiders also took children's toys and other festive decorations from the shed at the rear of a property in Twinames Estate in Maryport.

Cumbria Police said the theft took place between 2000 GMT on Wednesday and 1025 GMT on Thursday.

Officers want to hear from anyone who may have seen the culprits escaping with the life-size Christmas figures.
