Saturday: Very bad Santa, music & downloads

Just one week until Christmas and judging by the crowds of shoppers there are still plenty of presents to buy!

Oh dear Santa....
LONDON (Reuters) - Swanage police said on Friday they were looking for a Santa acting suspiciously -- a flasher who had repeatedly exposed himself to women, including on one occasion while dressed as Father Christmas.

Officers said the flasher had struck a number of times since December 6, and a week later exposed himself whilst wearing a Santa Claus outfit.

"I would be very interested to hear from anyone who may have seen someone acting suspiciously while dressed as Father Christmas in the Gilbert Road or surrounding areas of Swanage town centre," Police Constable Jonathan Maunder said.

"These incidents of indecent exposure have caused a great deal of upset to the women that the man has approached."

UK 'tops European download fans' (Click here to get the full story)
Mobile phones are popular devices for listening to music. People in the UK download more music than other Europeans, spending 75p per month on average, a survey suggests.
The study for Motorola said it was three times more than those surveyed in Germany, Italy or France.

Might it be that our pop music is better? (xenophobic remark 736)

Have a fun day & night
