SCORES of people turned out to see world-famous bright red Coca-Cola truck roll into Poole yesterday to spread joy.

People were able to head down and see the festively decorated vehicle, which for many is one of the key elements in the countdown to Christmas, in Seldown Car Park on Kingland Road, next to Poole Bus Station.

It was open to visitors yesterday afternoon from 12pm to 8pm at the car park in the town centre, as just one of 45 stops the truck will make on its tour of the UK, running from November 28 to December 23.

Bobby Brittain, GB marketing strategy and activation director for Coca-Cola, said: “Every year the support for our ‘Holidays Are Coming’ advert enables us to deliver a truly exceptional experience to people across the nation.”
