A woman from Felixstowe has been handed the keys to a brand new electric car after winning a competition marking the East of England Co-op’s 150th anniversary.

Linda Houseley received the keys to her new Toyota Yaris hybrid eco car from the Co-op’s chief executive Roger Grosvenor on Thursday, September 7.

Over the summer, the Co-op ran a big prize draw in celebration of its 150th birthday.

Handing out scratch cards to its customers, 200,000 prizes were up for grabs - including the new car.

Mrs Houseley said: “What an exciting week.
