A MAN from Barnston 'couldn't believe his luck' after being handed the keys to a brand new car he won in a competition on Saturday.

Gregg Pettit, 27, a facilities management engineer from Chelmsford Road said he was thrilled to have won the 1.2 litre Volkswagen Polo, but admitted that he knew very little about it.

"My fiancée Kirsty and I were looking to sell our house back in April and asked Intercounty to come and give us a valuation. I didn't think any more about it.

"Then a couple of weeks ago I was just about to go into a meeting when I got a phone call saying I'd won the car.

"I didn't believe it at first; I thought it was one of these cons you hear about."

The shiny red car was officially handed over to Mr Pettit on Saturday outside Intercounty's Great Dunmow office by office manager Andrew Kershaw and the man who drew Mr Pettit's name out of the hat, managing director Greg Young.
