A YOUNG Saffron Walden artist was celebrating this week after winning an Essex Police safety poster competition.

Josie Ogle, a Year Six pupil at RA Butler Primary School, won a digital camera and a Christmas hamper for her fellow pupils after her picture of a witch on a broomstick warning children to stay safe during Halloween was awarded first prize.

The competition, sponsored by Waitrose, was held as part of the police's Youth Spotlight Campaign and was open to all Year Six pupils in Uttlesford, with a winner chosen for both the north and south of the district.

PC Kathryn Nessling, after schools partnership officer for Uttlesford, said: "We had a fabulous response with 191 entries across Uttlesford and the standard was extremely high.

"All the children have worked extremely hard and the judges were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and creativity of the competitors."

The winning and runner-up posters will be used in next year's police safety campaigns.
