Santa is Nicked as Protestors Shut Down Barclays Bank 

An amusing video has
emerged of police arresting a man dressed up as Father Christmas
during an anti-arms protest outside a Barclays branch in Brighton on Friday.

The footage shows the man being led away by police after he superglued his
hands to the glass doors of a Barclays branch in the city centre.

The man can be seen wearing a sign saying “Santa says you’ve been a very
naughty bank this year: Divest from the arms trade”, in opposition to
the bank’s alleged collusion with an Israeli-based arms company.

According to local reports, the man was arrested along with another protestor
who locked himself to a side door with bike locks.

The protest forced the branch to close for around 15 minutes.
