Linda Chapman, of Wymondham, won South Norfolk Council's photo competition, which involved residents taknig a snap of the Tour as it passed through the district.

Mrs Chapman has won a frog kids' bike worth over £400 from local business Howards Cycles.

The amateur photographer, who works in one of the town's pharmacies, has given the bike to her friend's son, eight-year-old Nicholas Townsend.

She said: 'It was such a great day – so many people out on the streets to cheer the Tour on, and a real sense of community. I never miss an opportunity to get my camera out, but usually horses are my subject. It's lovely to see my photo in print. A Huge thanks to South Norfolk Council and Howards Cycles for the fantastic prize which has gone to a good home.'
