AbbotFox, an estate agents in the city, welcomed more than 100 schools to take part in their re-branding competition, asking pupils to create designs for four Mini Coopers the company uses to shuttle clients around.

Teenagers were given a brief to incorporate the brand colours, but were encouraged to be as imaginative as they could.

Finalists were whittled down to entries from Wymondham College, City College and Attleborough Academy and finally Finley Williams, from Attleborough Academy, was named the winner.

AbbotFox contacted his design teacher, Luke Jeffs, and he broke the news to Finley.

Samuel Le Good, an abbotFox partner, said: 'It was a tough choice to pick the winning design, but from the social media comments and tough deliberation in the office we concluded that Finley's design was simple but effective and was exactly what we were looking for.

'We are really happy with the design and can't wait to showcase them on viewings in Norwich and Norfolk.'

The cars also feature his signature and his school's logo.
