American children sending their Christmas lists to the North Pole will be disappointed this December, as the US postal service has put a stop on replies.

Traditionally, letters addressed to ‘Santa Claus, North Pole’ were delivered to a small town in Alaska, where volunteer ‘elves’ sorted the mail and replied individually.

However, the festive service has been stopped after it was discovered that one of the elves was a registered sex offender.

Luckily there’s no such problem this side of the pond, as little ones can still write to Santa at: Santa, Santa’s Grotto, Reindeerland, SAN TA1, including their name and address, and with a little help from the Royal Mail, Father Christmas will magically respond.
