Santa Claus (alias Steve Chessell, British Army) was attempting to abseil from a skylight at the Broad Street Mall during a Christmas Lights switch-on ceremony when his beard got caught on the rope fifteen feet from the ground. He spent the next forty minutes hanging until fellow soldier Marc Hilton rescued him by clipping off his beard.
