The six foot tall characters were set up in the city, as a fun initiative for families to enjoy.

The idea is to follow the trail and collect their names.

Salisbury BID, who set up the trail, told Spire FM that CCTV was passed onto police.

On the 4th December Carol, the Nutcracker on St John Street, was stolen completely.
