A building on Cambridge University’s campus has been decorated with Santa hats, much to the surprise of students and locals alike.

With the festive season in full swing, it seems as if a student has taken Christmas decorations to the next level. The Santa hats were spotted by photographer Martin Bond who subsequently went ahead and took photographs of the building.

Bond told the BBC that he believes a “rascal student” is responsible for placing them on carved figures on the Gothic-style chapel at St John’s College.

The figures are 50 metres high, and many believed it might have been put there with the help of a drone, but Bond is convinced that a student “definitely climbed up there”.

The photographer also said that he had asked one of the porters at St John’s College if someone from inside the building might have been involved.

“I was told by a porter no key had been signed out, so they weren’t placed inside, it was done from the outside.”

While no one has come forward to claim responsibility, the local council has said that no complaints were received and that they’ll leave it there until the festive season is over.
