ESSEX air ambulance charity chiefs have announced the winner of their exclusive eBay-inspired motorcycle helmet competition.

Motorcycle Run participants were given the opportunity to bid up until the auction closed on September 18.
A delighted Mr Adams said: “When I saw the helmet on eBay I thought, I want that, but I really expected to be beaten.
“To my surprise it actually fits me. I’ve worn it quite a few times and it’s been recognized a fair bit.
