With Christmas just around the corner, there’s so much to look forward to. Pigs in blankets, the pending arrival of your next student loan, the joy of being able to start drinking at 10am because ‘f*** it, it’s Christmas!’

One thing the people of Bournemouth can't look forward to this year, is the arrival of the Coca-Cola truck, which for the first time in nine years will not be stopping in the seaside town.

The nearest stop this year will be Portsmouth, meaning you’ll need to find another way to get your free can of Coke.

Alternatively, you can get a train ticket, but it's a safe bet that'll be more pricey than just buying one.

The arrival of the truck usually signalled the start of Christmas for the local residents. With hundreds of people visiting the pier to see it last year alone.

The question now becomes, where will we get our blinking lights and free drinks?
