Sidmouth youngster Johannes is a rocket man

SIDMOUTH youngster Johannes Pyro landed a Cozy Plush animal after winning a town shop’s model firework competition.

Johannes, nine, picked up his prize from Monday’s Child last week after the store staged the half term contest to celebrate the completion of a recent refurbishment.

Johannes was joint winner with Jessica Gibbings, seven, from Surrey, who entered the competition while visiting her grandparents in Sidmouth.

Runners-up received a pack of sweets for their fantastic efforts.
