FAMILIES were out in force in Carluke Market on Saturday night to see Santa Claus arrive in a horse-drawn cart before handing out oranges as presents to excited local youngsters.

Smiling faces aplenty greeted Father Christmas as he yo-ho-hoed his way into Carluke and received his usual spectacular welcome.
