This is why the Coca Cola truck is not coming to Hull for Christmas 2019 tour

For many the sight of the iconic Coca Cola truck signifies the start of the festive period. The big red truck, famed for the drink company's much loved Christmas adverts, will once again tour the UK - but Hull is set to miss out for the second year in a row. Back in 2017 the event attracted thousands of people looking to get a glimpse of the yuletide magic as the vehicle stopped off outside St Stephen's shopping centre on its Hull leg of the tour.

It was the first time it had come to Hull since 2014 and many will be left disappointed at the news that the truck will not be coming to town this year. The tour's only Yorkshire stops are in Leeds on November 22, 23 and 27. Coca Cola have said that they try to visit as much of the country as it can - but it just is not possible - meaning some towns and cities may have to go without this year.

A Coca-Cola spokesperson said: "We're sorry that the Coca-Cola truck will not be able to visit Hull this year.

"We try to cover as much of the country as possible, but unfortunately we can't visit every town and city. "We update the route every year, making sure we visit locations which are easily accessible from the surrounding areas. "This year, we are spending longer in each location, allowing those in nearby areas more time to travel to their nearest truck stop."
