Santa, the PSNI and the people of Lurgan took part in the Mannequin Challenge just as the Christmas Lights were to be switched on.

As hundreds gathered in the icy weather, young and old froze for the video in Lurgan town Centre.

The video spans from the stage as a pretty female police officer gave Santa Claus a peck on the cheek.

Looking down at the frozen crowd was Deputy Lord Mayor and hostess Pamela Ballentine.

The local police had huge praise for the audience as they posted the video on the PSNI Craigavon Facebook page.

A spokesperson said: “Often doing this social media stuff means sharing bad news. Stuff that. Here’s Lurgan in its true light!

“If you remember the Running Man challenge, you’ll know we don’t do these things in the back yard of the station - we involve the town!

“So here, from the people of Lurgan, is the mannequin challenge!

“They say don’t work with children- but these guys were FANTASTIC! Well done everyone!

“Apologies to Santa for having to endure that kiss for so long. She couldn’t help herself.

“Lets share this around and show the world the real Lurgan!”
