Glasgow parents are being warned to be wary of a "fake" Christmas event making the rounds on social media. 

Winter Wonderland Stirling promised a drive-thru Christmas attraction through an enchanted forest. 

But it has since emerged the site had copied that of a Welsh Santa's Grotto the 'Reindeer Lodge'. 

The Reindeer Lodge issued a warning on social media claiming they alerted police to the alleged scam.

A post read: "If you have purchased tickets through one of the fake profiles on facebook or from a different website other than our own, please contact your card company immediately to clawback the transaction.

"We have contacted UNIVERSE (the ticketing company they are using) and will be notifying the police.

"Please note we only have the one location and only sell tickets direct from our website."

The event which is advertised as being in Blairlogie, near Stirling is still selling tickets at £12.99, but the Facebook page has since been deleted.

Christmas lovers have taken to social media to urge others to not fall for the "scam" after struggling to get refunds.

The Glasgow Times has attempted to contact Winter Wonderland Stirling for comment.
