A family-run car dealership is in the driving seat after beating major competition to win a top award.

Branton-based CEJ 3000 was handed the Doncaster Retailers Award from the South Yorkshire Trading Standards Motor Trade Partnership.

This was the fifth time the company has taken home the accolade since 2008, and the firm was named runner-up in the two years it did not win. On each occasion the family business has been chosen for the award over much larger firms, such as Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

Owner Colin Edward Jones, 59, of Auckley, said: “It is fantastic to get recognition from your peers.”
