Harrods, in Knightsbridge, central London, has also installed CCTV in its grotto and ensured that there is an elf there at all times.

According to the Daily Mail, the kids can only sit on Santa's lap with the permission of their parents, the Telegraph reported.

"It is political correctness gone mad," a source said.

"But following all the press coverage of Jimmy Savile, bosses felt they could take no chances and decided to take out strict preventative measures".

"Not surprisingly, poor Father Christmas feels incredibly restricted in what he can and cannot say; he wouldn't have these problems in Lapland," the source added.
