Santa is currently refusing to come down from the tripod, which is decorated with tinsel and Christmas decorations, until the UKBA can promise that no more children will be terrorised by immigration officials breaking into their homes to arrest them.
Santa in his traditional red and white costume and with a big white beard is being supported by a group of elves from the Campaign Grotto based at the Unity Centre. Several police are in attendence and so far the atmosphere is very good humoured. Protesters are playing Christmas carols during the action.
Santa said: "I'm taking this action to stop any more children from being detained by the UKBA like little 4 year old son Shahmer who with his two teenage sisters and mum and dad was arrested in his home last week by the UKBA. I am shocked that children can be locked up in this way when the government pledged they would never do this again."
