Santa and his elves will be flying over North Devon today (Tuesday, December 22) and bringing cheer to young and old patients at the hospital too. 

An all-too-familiar yellow Sea King helicopter will return to skies across the area as Historic Helicopters, based in Chard, takes Santa and his helpers on a two hour plus tour of North Devon and Somerset. 

The times posted on the Sea King Helicopter Facebook page are only approximate, according to organisers, but Santa is set to lift off at 12noon. 

The latest on the Sea King page suggests new locations, have been added, with South Molton at 12.35pm and the Bideford and Appledore area at 1.10pm. 

Times are likely to vary but the original itinerary had the aircraft at Lapford at 12.25pm, then North Devon District Hospital at 12.45. 

It is understood the helicopter will be landing at the hospital to drop off presents for youngsters in the Caroline Thorpe children’s ward.
