A PAIR of naughty elves took to the streets causing mischief as part of a Basildon toy firms annual campaign.

The elves were spotted in London as part of the elves behaving badly campaign event by Basildon based company PMS International Group PLC.

The festive campaign is currently encouraging families to share pictures of their badly-behaved elves using the hashtag #ElvesBehavinBadly as part of a social media competition.

The photography competition closes on Sunday December – each week one winner wins a £100 Amazon gift card.

To be in with a chance of winning, share a of your elves getting up to no good on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook along with the hashtag #elvesbehavinbadly and tagging @ElvesBB on Twitter and @elvesbehavinbadly on Instagram and Facebook.

Customers can shop for the Elves Behavin’ Badly Christmas range on Amazon or in-store at Poundland, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, The Works, The Range, Poundstretchers, and retailers.

Paul Beverley, Managing Director at PMS International Group PLC, said: “Our elves took to the streets of London with a little too much Christmas cheer in their bellies. Their raucous antics are just part of their nature and there really is no excuse for pulling down Santa’s pants.”

"In the lead up to Christmas we hope parents and children alike will get involved with sharing pictures of their own elf mischief on social media, and be in with a chance of winning a prize every week.”
