A WISBECH woman showed herself to be the conundrum queen as she solved the puzzle of the jumbled letters in the store window.

The Horsefair Shopping Centre got involved in Wisbech Arts Festival by encouraging its shoppers to take part in the game.

Mary Killingworth figured out the letters, designed by local craftsman and displayed in one of the centre’s store windows, spelt capital, a reference to the town being the capital of the Fens.

Her name was the first one drawn out of all the correct entries.

She won a £50 Argos voucher, which was presented to her by Horsefair manager Kevin Smith and Lorena Hodgson from the Wisbech Arts Festival team.
