Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 8:44am 7th December 2017. (Updated at 2:36pm 7th December 2017)

Bridlington Round Table's Santa Sleigh has been attacked.

The organisation says volunteers were spat at and had cans thrown at them last night and people tried to steal sweets and money from them.

The attack, which happened on Gypsey Road, has led to the Bridlington Communities Team urging anyone with any information to come forward and report it to the police.

It posted this statement on social media:

"Thanks to everyone who came out to see Santa tonight.

Unfortunately the night was spoilt towards the end. It is NOT acceptable nor human behaviour to throw cans at our volunteers, nor is it to spit, swear and try steal money and sweets off our volunteers;

Especially from the Children committing the above !!

Our volunteers do NOT do this to be abused in anyway and certainly do not expect it. When we have to put our children in the car for their safety it is a bad day.

If this happens again, the latter part of tonight’s route will be cut.

We appreciate they are in the minority and it would be a shame if all the appreciative individuals had to miss out on Santa’s visit due to the stupidity of a few."

Paul is a member of the Round Table and has told Yorkshire Coast Radio's Jon Burke what happened..
