A 17-YEAR-OLD Harrogate Grammar student has been crowned Miss Harrogate 2012.
Laura Anderson will now go on to the Miss England semi-finals later this year.
She said: “Taking part in Miss Harrogate 2012 was a brilliant experience and a fantastic night.
“I’m still in shock that I won, as there were some amazing girls there.
“I’ve also made some really good friends and I hope we stay in touch.
“I haven’t quite decided what I’m going to do next, but I’m hoping to help raise money for the children’s ward at the hospital, because I’ve spent so much time in there in the past couple of years with my asthma.”
She thanked the judges, her sponsor, Noir Harrogate, and organisers Vivienne Edge and Ashleigh Jayne.
