Eight-year-old Hamza wondered how Santa was going to deliver presents to his chimney-less home this Christmas.

So his doting dad, Jonathan Silman, created a way for Father Christmas and his reindeer to find their flat at the East Village in Stratford.

The 28-year-old created a special reindeer guidance system, alongside the East Village and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and sent Santa a video to help guide him on Christmas Eve.

Using the local landmarks of the Olympic Stadium and the ArcelorMittal Orbit, the drone flew, from Santa’s point of view, over the E20 neighbourhood.

Jonathan Silman said: “Hamza was really worried that Santa and his reindeers wouldn’t be able to find his way to East Village as it’s such a new neighbourhood. Nothing would put his fears at bay.

“Even after I put up a Santa Stop Here sign, he asked me difficult questions like how will Santa find his way to our new home, especially as we haven’t lived here long.

“He believes Santa uses chimneys as a guiding point to find the good children, this broke my heart so I decided to take matters into my own hands. I hope this video inspires children not only in East Village but also in new neighbourhoods up and down the country, especially those living in houses and flats which don’t have chimneys.”
