IT SEEMS even the statues in Droitwich have been getting into the Christmas spirit, with St Richard in Vines Park looking particularly festive.

One resident snapped the statue draped in tinsel and a Santa hat on Monday, taking to Twitter to share the image.

The colourful additions have appeared just months after vandals broke three fingers on one of the hands of the statue in July.

The statue of St Richard, a bishop who once blessed the well in Droitwich, was first installed in its spot in Vines Park in 1935.
