Judges creased over ironing firm
Ms White's Creased Lightning jeep
The cash will be spent on redecorating
An ironing service in Bristol has scooped 5,000 cash for its name.

Crease Lightning, run by Judy White, 35, beat off competition from greengrocer Melon Cauli to win the Yellow Pages' Best Business Name 2004.

Ms White, a fan of the movie Grease, said: "The name came to me. I wanted something that would raise a laugh and that people would remember."

The business is run from home and Ms White said she would have to take on new staff if it got any busier.

'Witty tribute'

"I started up in May of this year with a few customers.

"We went in the Yellow Pages in September and it has gone from there," she said.

"I would like to thank whoever nominated me for the award."

Other entrants included entertainment company Amp & Decks and photographer, Flash Gordon.

Ms White says she will spend the cash on redecorating her home in Bradley Stoke.

Richard Duggleby, spokesman for Yellow Pages, said: "Crease Lightning caught the judges' attention with its witty tribute to a well-loved film."
