A young woman will be raising more than one glass to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee after winning a free bar thanks to this paper.

Megan Bartlett, 23, of Caister, is the lucky winner of our Platinum Jubilee Bar competition, which offered nearly £500 of drinks.

Miss Bartlett, who lives with her parents, said: "I'm going to have some family come around on the Saturday and we should have a barbecue.

"I am surprised I won as a I think a lot of people entered the competition."

For the competition we teamed up with Hindringham-based brewery Moon Gazer to lay on drinks worth almost £500 for the lucky winner, their family and friends to toast the Queen's 70 glorious years as monarch.

For a chance to win the competition people were asked the question: "Our much-loved monarch is well known for her lifelong love of dogs.

"But which has been her favourite breed of them all ever since her 18th birthday, when she was given a puppy called Susan by her father, King George VI?"

The answer is off course corgis.
