Holidays are coming to Chester as the red and white Christmas-themed lorry is to roll into the city centre.

It will be in Eastgate Street from 12noon and thousands of Cestrians are expected to turn out.

We'll be down there to see the truck arrive and see what the atmosphere is like.

The arrival of Coca Cola has not been without controversy, as the annual Winter Watch parade had to be moved to accommodate the truck.

Crowds have turned up in the pouring rain in Chester to see the first ever visit of the Coca Cola truck in Eastgate Street. Thanks for sharing your photographs, thoughts, tweets and video.
