Father Christmas appears to have begun his deliveries a few weeks early in Fakenham area.

A giant Santa Claus has already been spotted on a rooftop on the outskirts of the town.

A 16-metre long, 2.5-metre high spectacle featuring Father Christmas in a sleigh being pulled by four reindeers can be seen on the roof of Fakenham Garden Centre.

It is part of a Christmas lights display featuring tens of thousands of low electricity bulbs.

It has been put together by Terry Miles, from Terry Miles Electrical, and is unmissable for anyone driving into Fakenham from the direction of Dereham or Swaffham.
