Part of Bristol is getting shoppers in the Christmas spirit with its very own elf trail.

If you head to Bedminster, you might find yourself bumping into some elves. The community is taking it all very seriously - local schools have provided some of the little helpers and there's even an 'Elf and Safety' office.

The idea is children look for some of a hundred elves and claim rewards at candy check-in points if they spot them.

Obviously I think the kids will really jump on board and I hope their parents too. Anyone strolling through the area can just have it as an extra fun thing to do, you know - spot some elves.
