Christmas is nearly here, and Santa is making his way around the world delivering his gifts.

But where is Father Christmas right now? And how many presents has he managed to deliver?

Luckily for inquisitive minds, there are two ways to follow Santa Claus this Christmas Eve.

The North American Aerospace Defence Command are using their state-of-the-art satellites to track Santa for one day only, and his progress can be followed on a computer, smartphone or tablet. Google have also created an app that will follow the progress of Santa and his sleigh throughout the day and night.

In 2014, NORAD logged almost 20 million visits to its Santa Tracker.

But while Santa may be having a wonderful journey around the world on his sleigh, some are struggling to get home today.

Travelling by train during the festive period can be difficult with engineering works and cancelled trains.

For anyone wanting to travel on Christmas Day 2017, no train lines are currently running. But there are Christmas Eve train services across the nation.
