A man dressed as Santa has had to be rescued from Glasgow's iconic cone-topped statue of Wellington.
Videos and stills posted to social media showed the man being taken to safety by a cherry picker.
A police spokesperson confirmed the man was "spoken to accordingly".
This is the second time in two years a man dressed as Santa has had to be rescued from the statue.
Last year a 51-year-old man was given a fixed-penalty ticket after having to be saved from the monument.
According to the BBC: "The Santa was last seen entering a police van as the gathered crowd shouted: 'Free Santa'".
It's believed the 2014 Santa incident was a protest by a father campaigning for access to his children. It's currently unclear if this Santa was connected to today's incident.
