Police are still hunting a group of Santas who sent a wall crashing to the ground after they tried to pull down a political party sign.

The group, who were dressed in Father Christmas suits and hats, were spotted vandalising a Labour Party sign which had been put up outside a house in Norwich's Golden Triangle.

The men were followed to a nearby pub by a neighbour who challenged the group and asked them to apologise and offer to pay for the damage, but they insisted it had not been them.
