A festive flight: Santa Claus arrives at Jersey Airport

A very recognisable visitor has touched down at Jersey Airport today.

Despite being very busy, Santa Claus and his helpers have found the time to visit the island this weekend.

As part of their trip, they will be checking if the little boys and girls have been good in the run up to Christmas.

The event has been organised by the Jersey Round Table and the Jersey Christmas Appeal, who are raising money for disadvantaged children and their families.

On average 1,500 individuals are helped by the Jersey Christmas Appeal each year.
