A parody of Coca-Cola's famous truck advert, featuring Jeremy Corbyn as Santa Claus, has been taken down after the soft-drinks giant lodged a complaint.

Pro-Corbyn activist group Momentum posted footage of the advert featuring brightly-lit trucks with doctored slogans including 'scrap tuition fees' and 'build one million new homes' plastered across the sides.

The group shared the spoof video with the caption: 'The new Coca-Cola Advert is actually amazing' on Friday.

'With such popular policies including fast and free broadband, a million new homes and no tax rises for the 95% we'd have thought they'd welcome some real change under the Christmas tree.'

A Coca-Cola spokesman said: 'We have been made aware of a social post from Momentum which uses footage from the Coca-Cola Christmas advert.

'The film is in no way endorsed by The Coca-Cola Company and we have not given permission for any footage to be used in this way.

'We are taking steps to ensure this is removed.'
