That's why the Coca Cola truck does not come to Liverpool during its 2018 tour

Over the last six years, the festive attraction has been pouring free cans of Coca-Cola at Williamson Square and Liverpool ONE, and thousands of people have been drawn into the city center.

But this year it will not find its way to Merseyside.

The news comes after the liberal-democrat leader of the city declared that he believed that the Christmas tradition would not take place in the city.

Speaker of the Echo, Lib Dem leader Cllr Richard Kemp said: "I am very happy that the Coca Cola truck is not coming to Liverpool.

"Over the past three years, there has been a constant debate about obesity in children, which makes more parents more aware of the part that is paid by sugary drinks to their weight and their teeth.

"I doubt they have decided to miss Liverpool because of our campaign, but there is a great reaction in the city to public health reports, so perhaps the city as a whole has made them realize they are not welcome"

That's why Coca-Cola said it will not visit Liverpool in 2018:

ECHO contacted Coca-Cola and asked why it did not return to town, a spokesman told ECHO: "We try to cover as much of the country as possible, but unfortunately we can not visit every city and city.

"We update the route every year and ensure that we visit locations that are easily accessible from the surrounding areas.

"This year we spend longer at each location, so people in the vicinity have more time to travel to their nearest stop, such as Manchester on Wednesday, November 28 and Queensferry, Deeside, on Tuesday, December 11."
