Coca-Cola has hit out at a new London art exhibition which has linked it with WWII Nazi Germany.

Curators of the show, comedian Mark Thomas and artist Tracey Sanders-Wood, claim the company advertised in Nazi papers and exhibited at Nazi trade fairs. They also said it opened bottling plants in Sudetenland shortly after the Nazis invaded Czechoslavakia.

But Coca-Cola has completely rejected suggestions that it supported the Nazi regime in any way.
