The Whitby Krampus parade takes place once again in the North Yorkshire town. The Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure from Austro-Bavarian Alpine folklore who during the Christmas season is said to have punished children who had misbehaved.
The event held in Whitby helps to raise money for the Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary charity.
