Santa has welcomed hundreds of children into his grotto at the Frost Garden Centre in Willington.

He has revealed that the most wanted toy on Bedfordshire children’s list this year is an Elsa doll from Disney’s blockbusting animation Frozen.

Number two on the present list is a classic of yesteryear, Lego and in third place is the Xeno monster doll.

Santa said: “These are the requests that stand out as the toys children are asking for most frequently and that are written in their letters.”
