Teen beauty queen Amie Lavercombe will represent the town at a top national contest where the prize is a once in a lifetime trip to America.

The 16-year-old Heysham High School pupil has reached the final of Miss Teen Galaxy England; taking place in March at Park Hall near Chorley.

The winner of Miss Teen Galaxy UK will travel to the USA to compete in the international final.

Amie, whose mum Mandy was also a beauty queen and model, said: “I am so excited to have made it to the final.

“It’s a great achievement and I can’t wait to meet all the other girls.”

Amie, a horse riding fan who is taking equestrian studies as one of her GCSEs, beat hundreds of applicants to reach the final.
