An estimated 8,000 Santa Clauses charged through the streets of the English city of Liverpool on Sunday, though many wore unusual blue costumes rather than the traditional red.

The Santa Dash round the northwestern city saw crowds of runners dressed up in full Santa suits with hats and white beards, but some stripped down to their festive-coloured shorts to get round the five-kilometre (three-mile) course.

Besides The Beatles, the port city is famous for its two Premier League football clubs, Liverpool and Everton, whose colours are red and blue respectively.

Other Santa dashes were taking place across Britain and Ireland on Sunday.
