Pac-Man has topped a poll of the UKs favourite computer game characters of all time. The dot-munching sprite beat off competition from Sonic the Hedgehog and Lara Croft. Harry Potter came eighth, even though the computer game has yet to be released. The poll was carried out by Dixons to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the electronic game.

Other favourites making it into the top ten included Pokemon, Super Mario and Donkey Kong. Dixons marketing director, Stuart Carson, told the Mirror: "Once Harry Potter is on the shelves, we might even find he knocks Pac-Man off the top of the list."
