Artist finds key to treasure.

AN artist from Stokesley has won a place in the final of nationwide PS10,000 treasure hunt.

Suzie Devey, 47, from North Field Close, was fast-tracked to the King's Ransom final when she discovered a golden key hidden in the Horsforth Pub in Leeds.

Treasure hunt enthusiast Suzie, was the first person to locate the key after teaming up with her friend Bob Dixon.

The duo will head to the final on September 14, hoping they can solve all the clues and find the money before anyone else.

Suzie has been completing the challenge over the summer and has thoroughly enjoyed the competition.

She said: "I am absolutely loving the King's Ransom.

"As you solve the clues, you learn a lot about different parts of the country.

Bob and Suzie, who are both members of a treasure hunting club but had never met before, will be allowed to bring two extra friends and family along to help them on the day.

Suzie said: "Bob and I decided to team up when we realised that the key was hidden in Horsforth.

"I can't believe we are now in the final.

"I am so excited." The internet based competition was launched on July 22, by pub retailer and brewer Greene King, to mark Prince George's first birthday and is the Suffolk-based company's biggest ever give-away.

Mark Blythman from King Greene said: "The King's Ransom has been a lot of fun for everyone involved and we have enjoyed watching keen treasure hunters solve our clues and narrow down their search.

"I would like to offer Suzie huge congratulations for reaching the final and I wish her the best of luck.
