Awards executive director Jayne Lewis-Orr said: “Rick and Zoe have demonstrated that they are accomplished stylists, with exceptional creative flair and technical expertise. The standard of entries this year has been phenomenal and they should feel incredibly proud to have been named as winners.” Zoe revealed it was the first time they had put together a joint entry and said: “We want to dedicate this award to the most important people in our life, our two sons.”

POLICE will be carrying out roadside testing for drink driving and also drug driving across the Humberside Force area in the run up to Christmas and New Year. A spokesperson told us: “We want everyone to have a holly jolly Christmas, but if you have had a drink, it is extremely important that you plan your journey home or ensure you have a designated driver.”

Last year, they arrested 159 people for drink and drug driving throughout the festive season. And in the first week of this year’s Roads Policing Unit campaign to tackle drink/drug drivers on local roads, 10 of 19 drugs wipes came out positive.
