A Norfolk company has issued a plea for the winner of a prize worth more than £40,000 to come forward. 

Matthew Mountain, owner of the Tackle Lounge and Carp Gear Giveaways in Diss, is trying to locate the winner of a van worth £42,000. 

Mr Mountain has been unable to contact Shaun Oliphant who won the competition against more than 63,000 other entrants. 

He said: "This is our biggest competition yet and the van is just sitting there.

"We've tried in various ways to contact Shaun, we need to find him."

Anyone who can help locate Mr Oliphant who is believed to be from Washington, near Sunderland, is also being offered a £1,000 cash reward. 

Carp Gear Giveaways is located in Mere Street in Diss and was founded by Mr Mountain four years ago. 

He added that he will be forced to redraw the competition if the winner does not come forward in the next two weeks. 

Anyone with information can contact the Tackle Lounge on 01379 831639.
