A SANTA slapped with a ticket as he dished out gifts told the Grinch traffic warden: “Post it to the North Pole.”
Mick Worrall, 75, was handed the £60 fine for driving his sleigh at 2mph in a pedestrian zone.
But Mick, collecting for charity on his three-wheeler bike, refused to take the ticket.
The great-grandad said: “I told the warden, ‘Send it to me in the post to my address’.
He said, ‘Where’s that?’. I said, ‘The North Pole’.
“I will go to court as Father Christmas if I have to. I’m not paying a penny in fines.”

Mike Fellows, who was in High Street, Worcester, said: “I thought it was a set-up but the warden was taking pictures.
Santa shouted, ‘You’re going on the naughty list’.”
Despite the fine, Mick, of Worcester, vowed to return next week to collect for New Hope Worcester Children’s Charity.
Worcester city council confirmed the fine was given for driving in a pedestrian zone.
