A TEENAGER from Barnsley has bagged a place in the Miss Teen GB finals.

Newly-crowned Miss Teen South Yorkshire, Eadie May Burton, from Ardsley, will head to Blackpool in October to contest the final.

The 16-year-old said: “I cannot wait to represent my county and my hometown in such an amazing event.

“I’m very pleased with myself – I went through a lot at school and had quite a hard time and I got myself through it so I’m really proud.”
