A SIXTH-FORMER at Corringham’s Gable Hall school has made it through to the semi-finals of the prestigious Miss England competition.

Emily Darnley, 16, who is the current Miss Fresh Teen, will compete at the event in May in Nottingham.

As part of the competition, the girls support a charity, with Emily’s choice being Beauty with a Purpose, an organisation backed by Miss World that benefits disadvantaged children the world over.
