A postman has been delivering some Christmas cheer to an Ayrshire community by dressing up as one of Santa’s elf on his daily run.

Gerry Long says the locals old and young love the outfit, similar to Will Ferrell’s in the Elf movie, as the build up to Christmas nears an end.

Speaking to STV News he said: “Well, they love it, they love it.

“They chap the window, they wave out to me and people go by in the cars beeping the horns.

“I’ve got some elderly residents when I am walking up their house and they’ll chap the window and they watch while I come up the other side of the street.

“So it keeps a wee eye on the community and keeps an eye on my customers aswell.
