Santa Claus is running through town

Bad weather never stops Father Christmas from reaching his destinations on Christmas Eve, and it didn't stop thousands of Londoners either at the weekend.

More than 4,000 runners braved the cold and wet conditions in classic red and white suits to run either 5k or 10k through Victoria Park in east London as part of the annual Santa run.

Those taking part were doing so for a variety of charities and were rewarded with a mince pie at the end of it.

London Live spoke to some of those involved.
