Pictures: Holidays come to Exeter with Coca-Cola Christmas lorry

Christmas commercialism mixed happily with the traditional Christian message in Exeter’s High Street.

As the city Nativity Procession wended its way along High Street to Exeter Cathedral it passed the iconic, big red Coca-Cola Christmas truck parked up in Bedford Square.

The Christmas truck – which has gained a cult following thanks to the beverage company’s Yuletide adverts – is mid-way through a tour of the UK and is making the Exeter stop on its only visit to Devon and Cornwall this year.

It spent most of Sunday in Exeter attracting bumper crowds.

Visitors were invited to have their pictures taken next to the illuminated truck and festive helpers were on hand to serve chilled fizzy drinks.

    Coca Cola is a truly repugnant corporation - stealing water from communities in Africa for their bottling plants, implicated in human rights abuses in Central America while flogging a toxic product world wide... quite why Exeter City Council and the Express and Echo are acting as shills for these morally bankrupt is beyond me. I bet this comment gets removed...
