A YOUNG Farnworth girl is hoping to outshine the competition at a national beauty queen event.

Former Harper Green School pupil, 16-year-old Leony Hill, has made it through to the final of the Miss Teen Great Britain competition, which will be taking place in Blackpool on August 31.

The teenager will be competing in the 16 to 19 years bracket having made it to a shortlist of just 30 girls.

She said: “It feels good to have made it this far, there were thousands of people who applied but after being interviewed by the judges I have made it to the final.”
