Whitby beauty Laura Stone is hoping to beat the curse of seconds when she takes to the stage in the finals of the annual Miss Scarborough contest tomorrow night.

She came second last time she entered a couple of years ago and was also runner up in last week’s Miss York competition which featured 20 girls from around the region.

The beauty salon owner will be hoping to impress the judges with her hand-made eco dress made from copies of the Whitby Gazette as well as outfits in beachwear, evening wear and Football Fever where she will be donning a Fishburn Park kit.

She said: “It will be good fun and I am looking forward to it.”
