Irregular Sleigh Vehicle Towed Back To North Pole

A large sleigh, which was attempting to smuggle thousands of presents into Australia, has been turned around and towed back to the North Pole, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has confirmed.

“While I obviously can’t comment on the specifics, what I will say is that this is proof once again that our strengthened border security measures are working,” Mr Dutton said.

“We are smashing the business model of present smugglers,” he said.

There have been suggestions on talkback radio that the man in charge of the vehicle had a long beard.

More to come.
