Punchline (joint) top of the pile in Cummings County Quiz

The Punchline team scored 46 out of 50 on the Cummings County Quiz - putting us joint top of the table

After five mornings of head-scratching, mind-trawling and - yes, we'll admit it - lucky-guesses, the Punchline team are celebrating success in BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Cummings County Quiz.

Our total of 46 points out of 50 puts as level with our friends at Marketing Gloucester  - and no, we can't quite believe it either.

The Cummings County Quiz takes place on Mark Cummings' breakfast show and sees businesses test their knowledge of the county.

We made a sticky start to the week, dropping four points over the first three days, but roared back by scoring 10/10 on both Thursday and Friday, to join Marketing Gloucester at the top.

Mark Owen, editor of Punchline-Gloucester.com, said: "We are thrilled to come out level with Marketing Gloucester at the top of the pile, it was a fantastic effort by our team here.

"Andy, Beth, James and Matt all played their part during the week, not least by scoring our first 10 out of 10 when I was out of the office on Thursday!

"We've had so many brilliant comments, messages and tweets from friends in the Gloucestershire business community over the course of the week, and now we're issuing a challenge.

"We want to see who is capable of joining Marketing Gloucester and us at the top of the pile. The air is pretty clear and crisp up here, so why not come and join us?"

The Cummings County Quiz takes place every day on Mark Cummings' BBC Radio Gloucestershire Breakfast Show, that airs from 6am-9am each weekday on 104.7fm.
