There was plenty of glamour in Torquay last night as the finals of the Miss England competition were held, despite the winner momentarily losing her crown. The finalist from London will now go on to be a part of The Miss World competition in Indonesia in August.
The staging of the event in Torbay has been criticised by some, saying it's outdated & sends out the wrong message for the resort. 24 year old Kirsty Heslewood took the title. She has overcome chronic shyness to win the crown.
