Xmas Jeer

LONDON - Santa Claus has been forced to carry out his Christmas duties cowering under a hard hat after youths in a Scottish town pelted him with festive mince pies.

Santa was hit by a hail of pastry and dried fruit as the youths launched a barrage of mince pies from the upper level of the shopping centre in Paisley, west of Glasgow.

Now worried shopping centre chiefs, fearing a repeat siege of Santa, have taken "drastic" measures....
Santa's new hard hat has been decorated with red reindeer antlers to "Christmas it up a bit"...
