Santa Claus has been spotted in South Yorkshire - 135 days ahead of schedule.

But don't worry - the real man in red and white is still busy at the North Pole gearing up for December - with a scarecrow bearing his likeness being spotted by police officers on patrol in the county.

Rotherham South Local Policing Team tweeted a picture of one of their female officers sat alongside Santa while out on patrol and added: "Look what we found in Todwick today! @TodwickVillage Scarecrow Competition. How many days it is until Christmas?"

A wide variety of scarecrows are currently on display in the village.
