A stunning photograph of Ely Cathedral in the snow has won a ‘12 Days of Christmas’ photography competition.

The competition is run by the rural campaigning group The Countryside Alliance.

The photograph was snapped on Cherry Hill by Graham Barber during his lunch break.

It offers a magnificent view of the famous landmark, surrounded by a light cover of snow and frost.

Mr Barber, from Soham, has won a two- night stay at the Fox in Chipping Norton as well as a tour of the family-run brewery.
