Here's the moment a South Woodham woman was crowned Miss Essex 2015 last Sunday.

Victorious Devon Mayson beat her competitors to the title of Miss Essex, and will go on to represent Essex in the finals of the Miss England competition.

The singer-songwriter and model, who studied psychology at Coventry University, was shocked when she was named as winner at the event two weeks ago.

Devon, 22, competed in several different stages, including an interview on stage, at the Genting Club, Westcliff, to come out on top as Miss Essex.

Devon of South Woodham Ferrers, only found out about the competition two days before.

She will compete in Miss England in August.
