A couple have been presented with a prestigious award by Theo Paphitis just eight months after starting their business.

Danneka and Dan Trewick of Rye Grass Way in Braintree started Biz Promo Video, which makes low-cost animated videos for businesses, by setting up a Twitter account in March.

Within 24 hours of setting up their account, they had two orders and just three weeks later won the Small Business Sunday award run by Theo Paphitis from television’s Dragons' Den by Tweeting him a video promoting the competition.

Mr and Mrs Trewick attended an award ceremony at the ICC in Birmingham, where they were presented with their award by the former Dragon.
