RUMOUR FILE CONFIRMED
Christmas grinches have struck in Newport where a popular annual display has been sabotaged.
Vandals climbed onto Colin Drake’s balcony on The Strand and deflated giant blow-up Santas on Friday night.
The biggest Santa – six metres tall – is completely gone.
‘We thought it was some kids having a wild time … but we’re sure it would’ve been back by now if it was just a joke,’ Mr Drake told Justin and Kate.
‘A couple of nights before my wife saw a couple of shady looking people in a beat-up car.’
Another resident in the area told 3AW Breakfast her 16 candy canes and Santa sign stolen.
