THE prestigious Turnip prize in Wedmore has been awarded to Bracey Vermin for her work 'Tea P' - some used teabags in the shape of a P.

The ceremony for the annual art competition, a spoof of the world famous Turner prize, was held at The New Inn.

Bracey, who lives in the village, received the award of a turnip mounted on a six inch nail in front of a packed and cheering audience.

The 69-year-old said: "I have entered this most coveted art award on several occasions and I feel the lack of effort this year has really paid off, I knew the moment I came up with the idea the prize was in the bag.

The exhibits from the four finalists and an entry thought to be a potential offering from famous graffiti artist Banksy will now be sold on Ebay, with profits going to charity.
