As the nights begin to darken, and the city centre is heaving with more hustle and bustle than any sane human can handle, there is an overwhelming sense that Christmas is looming.
Whilst increased mulled wine-consumption and zealous attempts at carol-singing can heighten the festive spirit, nothing could be more Christmassy than the arrival of the Coca-Cola Christmas truck.
This weekend, lucky shoppers were treated to a real delight when the iconic red truck made a pit stop at the Trafford Centre.
Thousands came out to see the red vehicle lit-up in all its glory as it tours round the nation. Visitors queued to take photos by the lit-up truck, whilst indulging in a glass of the famous beverage.
