A Hinckley councillor has asked Leicestershire County Council to scrap a parking ticket given to Santa's sleigh.
Volunteer Chris Uttley was towing the Hinckley Round Table sleigh when he stopped on zig-zag lines.
He said he only stopped for 30 seconds, but was given the £35 fine by a 'smug' traffic warden.
A Leicestershire County Council spokesperson had said they were reviewing the ticket.
But Michael Mullaney, who is the county councillor for Hinckley, has called for the ticket to be scrapped.
