A 10-year-old schoolgirl's artwork will be used on MP Sadiq Khan's Christmas cards this year.

Alitza Chohderi, from Swaffield Primary School, was judged to be the winner of the MP's annual Christmas card competition.

Seven primary schools took place in the competition.

Entries were judged by Reverend Sue Clarke from St Paul's Church, Wandsworth police borough commander Chief Superintendent Paul McGregor, Wandsworth Guardian assistant editor Nick Hitchens and Councillor Ben Johnson.

Alitza was presented with a framed copy of the card, a certificate and an invitation for a tour of the Houses of Parliament.

Runners up also received prizes, while every participant will receive a certificate from Mr Khan.

The card will be sent out to more than 6,000 families, businesses, government ministers and even this year's X Factor winner.

Mr Khan said: "My Christmas card competition is always one of the highlights of being the MP for Tooting.

"It is great to see so many local schools taking part and the children taking such pride over their entries. I would like to say a big thank you to all the children who entered."

"Alitza’s design looks great and I am sure everyone at Swaffield Primary School will be very proud."
