ANOTHER Barnsley lass has made it through to the finals of the Miss South Yorkshire beauty competition!

Laura Clare, 17, joins fellow Barnsley teens Hollie-Jane Woodhouse and Emma Fielding in the last 21 hopefuls.

Held at the Hilton Hotel in Sheffield, the winner of Miss South Yorkshire on February 14 will seal a place in the finals of Miss England in the summer.

Laura, of Staincross, is studying business at Barnsley College and is excited by the prospect of the final.

She said: "I never really thought I'd get through when I sent my application in.

"I haven't done a beauty pageant before so it's all new but I'm looking forward to it!"
