A BROMSGROVE teenager whose boyfriend died in a road collision is aiming to promote better road safety by competing in Miss Worcestershire 2014.

Hannah Warman, aged 17, an art student at the Heart of Worcestershire College, has reached the finals in the competition after taking part in a gruelling fitness round.

Her boyfriend, Samuel Chambers, aged 17, was killed after being hit by a car near the traffic lights at the junction of the A38 in May.

Hannah said: “I am trying to make my boyfriend proud because he lost his life.

“I'm really looking forward to it. Afterwards I'm hoping to do more about road safety and making the roads around Bromsgrove more pedestrian friendly.

“I thought I would have a better opportunity to do something about it if I took part in the competition.

“I want to make people more aware, get speed cameras and better crossings because I don’t want to see it happen again.”

She added that following the competition she would be speaking to MPs regarding the road safety issues throughout the region.

The competition ends this Sunday, November 2 with a live final taking place at Worcester Guildhall.

To vote for Hannah text MISS WORCS14 to 63333. Voting closes on Sunday at 9pm.
