Giant Inflatable Santa Breaks Free; Holds Up Traffic

UK - Drivers found themselves stuck in a lengthy ho-ho-hold up when a giant inflatable Santa landed on a busy road.

The floating Father Christmas broke free of its moorings and drifted on to the Cromwell Road in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, blocking it in both directions at about 13:30 GMT.

Taxi driver Muhammad Fareed captured the stricken Santa on camera as he waited in a queue of traffic.

"It was one of the more unusual reasons to be stuck in traffic," he said.

A traffic alert by the AA said the road was "partially blocked - and slow traffic due to a large inflatable Santa on B198 Cromwell Road both ways in Wisbech".

The road has since reopened.
