It’s not his usual mode of transport, but Santa left his reindeer at home when he paid a recce visit to the Horsham area at the weekend.

He was spotted biking along the A264 dual carriageway near Faygate on Sunday by nine-year-old Esme Tapp who took this photo.

And Father Christmas was careful to stick to safety rules - he pulled his Santa hat over his crash helmet for the journey.
