The winner has been drawn in our New Year competition for one lucky reader to win £500 in cash!

Paul Gardner, from Hopton-on-Sea, correctly answered '31' to the question: 'How many days are there in January?'

Mr Gardner, 35, said: 'It was a great surprise to discover I had won, it really made my day when I found out.

'You enter these competitions and do not expect to win, so it was a nice surprise, the money will certainly come in handy.

'I entered when I was reading The Journal in bed and saw the competition and entered thinking nothing would come of it. It is true, you really have to be in it, to win it.

'I have no plans on how I will spend the prize money but it will probably be on a project – or I could buy 500 copies of the Lowestoft Journal!'
