Whitby beauty Laura Stone was crowned Miss Scarborough and district at a glittering finale on Saturday night.
The beauty salon owner was the pick for the judges after a number of rounds which included football fever where Laura (23) donned a Fishburn Park strip and evening wear.
She also wore a dress which she had made herself from copies of the Whitby Gazette.
Laura, who came runner-up in a previous Miss Scarborough will now go on to enter Miss England.
