Some of the most unusual Freedom of Information Act requests posed to local authorities have been listed.

Cheltenham Borough Council was at the receiving end of a demand for a release of information pertaining to their plans for what they would do in the event that Santa's sleigh crashlanded in the city this Christmas. The strange request even included specific questions about who would rescue Santa, who would clear up the crash site and who would help to round up the reindeer. "Some of the requests councils receive do not appear to relate very closely to the services they are focused on delivering every day of the year," said chairman Peter Fleming of the LGA Improvement Board.

"Cheltenham Borough Council was asked to provide details of its contingency plans for Santa crashing in an FoI request filed this year."

I think a lot of those are kind of silly, but I would be willing to bet that there are far more plans on the shelf than we can ever guess. I also think that there are many plans regarding aliens, whether or not they have been here is up to debate, but the possibility is always there. The universe is a big place full of surprises.

If you are going to call us British 'nutters', then may I suggest you spell the word 'colledge' correctly? Or even enrol in one. You pleb.

Do they not know that Santa, let alone FLYING reindeer do not exist? What next? Charging the 'tooth fairy' with break and enter? No wonder things are going to hell with such dumb people around. I would worry more about so many stupid fools out there than an emmergency plan for a Santa crash. Are those people for REAL?
