An eight year old from Suffolk is on the cusp of winning a huge sum of money in the McDonald’s Monopoly promotion - but he needs your help.

Anders Bester, who lives in Mildenhall, became the lucky owner of a Park Lane Monopoly sticker having visited his local McDonald’s restaurant yesterday.

However, the Bester family need to pair up with somebody in possession of a Mayfair sticker to cash in the £100,000 prize money. And there are only four of these in the UK.

Anders, who attends Moulton CEVC Primary School, has said he will split the monumental prize money with anyone who comes forward with a Mayfair sticker.

The young football fan is already planning his future should he be successful in finding the missing piece to the puzzle.

He said: “I would get a season ticket for Tottenham Hotspur and invest a little into my Dad’s plumbing business.”

Frans Bester, Anders father, added: “If he won it would be a little bit more than his pocket money! He would be more than happy to share it with someone.”

Mr Bester, who is 42, also revealed that Anders had initially thought he had lost his prized ticket, although it was found after a 20-minute search. He said: “Anders’ brother, Reece, said to me that Anders had won £100 with a Monopoly voucher but had lost it.

“I knew that it wasn’t a £100 voucher as McDonald’s don’t do that, I told them it isn’t £100 it is £100,000!

“We all searched the house and car for the sticker and luckily found it.”

Theresa May has won the confidence vote on her leadership of the Conservatives – but has promised MPs she will not lead the party into the next General Election.

The prime minister might have won a confidence vote but, asks political editor RICHARD PORRITT, what now for her leadership, Brexit and the country?

A powerhouse supermum from Melton has been crowned the World’s Strongest Woman – having only taken up the sport three-and-a-half years ago.

Business leaders and bosses have warned of the catastrophic consequences a hard or no deal Brexit could have on trade coming in and out of the Port of Felixstowe.

Forecasters are warning Suffolk and north Essex could see a sprinkling of sleet over the next few days – as overnight temperatures look set to plummet.

Detectives investigating reports of an attack outside an Ipswich restaurant have arrested two people.

Suffolk’s Tory MPs look set to vote together to support Theresa May in Wednesday night’s confidence vote on her leadership – but in Essex the picture is somewhat different.
