Ms Sturgeon addressed children across Scotland, reassuring them that Santa will not face any coronavirus restrictions when he delivers presents on Christmas Eve after reports that grotto appearances may have to be conducted virtually through Zoom.

She said: “If there are any kids watching, I know Santa will not be prevented from delivering your presents on Christmas Eve.

“Santa is a key worker and he’s got lots of magic powers that make him safe to do that. “If he’s having to do grotto appearances by Zoom, that’s to keep you safe, it’s not that Santa is at any risk. “Santa will be delivering presents across the world as normal.”

Ms Sturgeon warned that it is “unlikely to be able to celebrate Christmas with no limits on the people in our houses” but insisted if people follow the rules in the weeks ahead, there is more chance of more normality being allowed.
