A LUCKY Felsted mum met stars from Channel Five's 'Police Interceptors' programme after winning a Christmas prize draw.
Tracey Oram was selected from thousands of entries and she and her four-year-old son Freddie got the chance to see high-powered Subaru Impreza's and Mitshibushi Evo's in action.
The pair were greeted at the police unit by Pc Russ Jardine, who makes a frequent appearance on the documentary programme.
They also got to see how the state of the art unit works and met a number of the officers, including police dog Buster.

On winning the prize draw, Mrs Oram, said: "It's great to be able to visit the unit, lots of my friends who watch the programme were very jealous when I told them.
"The unit obviously has a real positive impact on catching criminals and making Essex a safer place to live, and it was great to see behind the scenes, to see how it all works and to actually meet the interceptors themselves."

The 'All I want for Christmas' campaign ran in November and December, and saw the police authority take to the streets of Essex, asking the public for the top three things they wanted to see from policing in 2009.
Anyone who took part entered into a prize draw to win the special day out with the elite Essex Police officers.
The top wish was for 'more officers on the street'. Essex Police since has pledged to recruit an additional 600 officers by 2013 through Operation APEX.
