Volvo Cars has announced the winners of an online competition being run to tie in with the new Twilight film.

More than 370,000 people in the UK, US, Canada, Germany and France took part in the challenge to complete a series of puzzles in the What Drives Edward competition, the company revealed.

The UK winner was 21-year-old David Inglis, who beat off competition from 24,000 compatriots to walk away with the prize of a brand-new Volvo XC60.

In the Twilight movies, the character Edward Cullen is shown driving exactly the same model.

Paul Walder, global marketing manager at Volvo Cars, said: "More younger people think that Volvo is 'cool' because Edward drives one and this will impact on their future car buying decision-making - Volvo is now on the radar."

Volvo has also been running a Facebook round-the-world-in-80-days challenge, with the car maker pledging to donate €15,000 (£13,500) in the winning team's name to a carbon offset project.
