TWO Barnsley residents have each won £5,000 worth of fuel.

Farhat Khan and Harry Palframan, customers at JET's forecourt on Pogmoor Road, won the prizes as part of a national competition to celebrate the fuel provider's 60th anniversary.

The competition, which took place at forecourts nationwide in December 2013, gave customers the chance to enter the prize draw every time they filled up with a minimum £30 fuel spend.

The winners were picked at random from 22,500 entries and by chance two of the winners entered at the Barnsley forecourt.

In total, 14 winners throughout the UK have won JetCards worth £5,000 to spend on fuel.

Rita McDonald, from the Barnsley forecourt, said: "We're over the moon that two of the 14 national winners entered the draw at our forecourt. What better way to kick start the anniversary by giving away such a huge amount of fuel to two of our valued customers."
