People took to Twitter to share their disappointed and sadness that the truck wouldn’t be doing its rounds this year.

One fan said: “2020 is the year fun died” and another added, “Christmas is cancelled.”

The 14-tonne lorry, decorated with fairy lights would usually give out free cans of the fizzy drink over the Christmas period stopping at shopping centres and supermarkets.

Coca-Cola have however promised “fun will never die”, before adding there was still “a lot to look forward to”.

Responding to one Twitter user, the company said: “We’ve got loads of festive treats to come, including our Christmas ad! Hold on to your Santa hats for now…”

Last year the truck visited 19 locations, including the North East, throughout November and December before making its final stop in London.
