To some it is a sign of the over commercialisation of Christmas - but to scores of people who queued to see the iconic Coca Cola Truck at Serpentine Green this week, it is part of the magic of the festive season.

The lorry, which has been made famous in the ‘Holidays are Coming’ television adverts, was at the Hampton shopping centre on Tuesday and Wednesday to spread festive joy to Christmas shoppers.
