It seems as if Santa has swapped his sleigh for a taxi this Christmas.
He has been surprising Mansfield residents by driving a ACE-ABC taxi around the town - which is usually driven by 34-year-old Kaleem Khalil.
Santa said: "It's really put a smile on people's faces.
"One lady even said she had been to a funeral and I had really made her day.
"It's been a unique experience."
Santa said he will be around until Christmas Eve, then its back to work with Rudolph and his sleigh.
But he hopes to be back next year - and has plans to raise money for charity when he makes his next appearance.
