A 12-year-old girl from Gorefield has won the semi final of a beauty pageant after her sister entered her into the competition.

Whitney Jane Pope, who studies at Peele Community College in Long Sutton, defeated a number of other entrants from around the country during an online round to win the title of Miss Junior Teen Inspiration Cambridge.

It was her first ever pageant.

Having gained the title last month, she will visit Wales in April 2016 to take part in the Little Miss Inspiration UK final.

She will be competing against a number of other regional entrants.
