Community nurse Diane Clarke said "Goodbye" to her bike today and got into top gear with a brand new car, thanks to winning top prize in a competition run by Cravendale fresh milk.

Diane, from Chalk Farm, celebrated her win in the national competition to win a brand new Ford KA. The free prize draw competition ran in over 300 stores nationwide during the summer.

Diane, mum of one, said: "I am absolutely delighted to win this competition. My current method of transport is a bicycle which is not always suitable in autumn and winter, so it is not only a great prize, but also, great timing."

Brian Beattie, Cravendale Brand Manager, said, "This promotion proved to be extremely popular - we received thousands of entries from all over the country. We are delighted that Cravendale is going to make life easier for Diane."

Diane was presented with the keys to her prize car by John Tattersall from Arla Foods, David Jenkins from Texaco and Zahid Hussain - Store Manager at Diane's local stockist of Cravendale - Texaco Garage on Chalk Farm Road.
