MISS Scarborough Leanne Wilford is preparing for the biggest competition of her life as the Miss England Final approaches.

The 18-year-old, who was crowned Miss Scarborough in May, will be travelling down to Birmingham for the two-day competition on Monday with dreams of winning the coveted crown.

The finals come just weeks after Leanne finished her A-Levels at Malton School.

She said: “I’m looking forward to it but I know the nerves are going to start kicking in when it comes to it.

“It would be amazing to win. I don’t think I have a very good chance but it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
