A BROMSGROVE beauty finished third in the Miss Worcestershire finals over the weekend.

Amy Jones, 21, of Central Road, was pipped to the post on November 12 by Rachael Baker of Redditch, who has now qualified for the Miss England grand finals.

But beauty therapist Amy, a former South Bromsgrove High School, scored highly as second runner-up and also won the Miss Publicity title.

Amy, who also came second in the Miss Modelesque round, said: “It was a really good night.

“You just feel both happy and sad as I just missed out on the overall title.

“But it has made me more determined to try again in the future and I’m going to try for Miss Birmingham next.”
