Santa Claus won't have to look too hard to fill out his naughty list this year: seriously irate parents have been yelling abuse at his staff in a Christmas grotto in York over a dodgy Groupon deal.

The small city centre grotto didn't exactly live up to the description in the Groupon offer, and the decorated present bunker's employees took so much flak that the most senior elf has even resigned.

Penelope Ward, organiser at York Winter Wonderland, told The Register the grotto had been inundated with families, particularly over the weekend, who had come from all over the country with Groupon vouchers promising a "magical train ride" along with a chance to meet Father Christmas.

Unfortunate reminder that we should ALWAYS check on offers made to the public!
