RIDLEY Scott is under fire for ruining a traditional Christmas procession in Telde, Gran Canaria.
But this year the filming of Scott’s biblical blockbuster Exodus on the nearby island of Fuerteventura has ruined the traditional plans.
The British movie director left locals fuming after he rented all the camels from a zoo for his latest film. It means there’s none left for the city’s annual Three Kings’ Parade.
Organisers are now being forced to look at alternative transportation for the gift-giving kings, who normally go on camel back.
The popular parade winds its way through the city’s streets every year on the evening of January 5, marking the night when the Three Kings arrived to see the baby Jesus.
Organisers have told youngsters not to worry and the Kings will still arrive in Telde.
