A Witham boy's colourful design will adorn MP Priti Patel's Christmas card this year.

Thomas James Peet, ten, a pupil at Powers Hall Academy, won the annual competition, which is open to children across the Witham constituency.

He will be invited to the Palace of Westminster for a tour of Parliament.

The runners-up were: William Bonham, six, of Terling Primary School, Alexa Rodrigues, aged six, of Chipping Hill Primary School, Erica Williams, eight, of Powers Hall Academy, Beth Cannon, nine, of St Andrew's Junior School, Hatfield Peverel, Fallon Viljoen, seven, of Copford Primary School, and Chloe Watson, eight, of St Luke's Primary School, Tiptree.

Their designs will be printed on the back of the card.

Ms Patel sent every child who entered the competition a certificate.
