AN INDUSTRIAL design student from Dinas Powys has won a competition to design a Christmas cracker for Marks & Spencer.
Chloe Tuck, who is in her third year at Loughborough University, designed the cracker around the classic Christmas novel from Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol, and the main character Ebenezer Scrooge.
The 21-year-old received a cash prize for her winning 'Humbug' design and was invited to finalise the design with a professional company.
"It was a good fun and good experience," said Chloe, who is travel to Shanghai to further her design experience in the new year.
Her dad, Greg Tuck, said he was extremely proud of her achievement.
The crackers contain a 'name that tune' style game where players must try to communicate the title of a song without actually saying anything or singing the lyrics.
The competition was organised in conjunction with New Designers annual exhibition.
