A NEWSAGENT is celebrating after winning a top gong at the Pro-retail awards, organised by Palmer and Harvey.

Chris Englefield, of BW News in Bridgwater, scooped the Retailer of the Year award at the ceremony hosted by comedian Dara Ó Briain.

Prizes are handed out to some of the most outstanding forecourt, convenience store and retailers in the country.

Chris said: “Receiving this award is such an amazing honour.

"I never thought I would win, as there are so many star retailers out there and it certainly wouldn't have been possible without the support of my staff and customers."
