STRATFORD has played a blinder and won the race to have its own version of the world famous board game Monopoly - and it's all down to the public.

People voted on line in Stratford-upon-Avon and around the world including Australia, Canada, America and New Zealand to help Stratford over the finishing line.

It was close though, with Stratford beating nearest rivals Shrewsbury by one per cent of the vote. Leamington finished third, Warwick and Gloucester made up the other towns in contention for the title.

Stratford people can now vote for which famous landmarks and streets should be included on the new board game which goes on sale in October.
