REINDEER have been rounded up just in time for Christmas.
Following reports that Father Christmas had lost some of his reindeer who were last seen in the vicinity of Hucclecote Meadows and Lobley’s Drive in Gloucester, city council rangers were looking for helpers to find them in to time for deliveries on Christmas Eve.
Ranger Richard Lawrence, who went undercover as a reindeer in an attempt to lure the errant animals back, said the event went really well.
“The weather overnight was pretty atrocious but it cleared and we had a good turnout of children who were keen to help,” he said. “We rounded up the missing reindeer, so Santa has a full complement in time for his deliveries
