She may not be wearing a beauty pageant crown, but Inez Hopwood is still sporting a big smile.

The teenager is celebrating her 18th birthday the day after taking part in the Miss Cambridgeshire contest.

A cleaner at her mum's Cromer pub, Inez, swapped her mop and bucket for some more stylish attire for the glitzy occasion.

Inez said: 'There was quite a lot of pressure and it is probably not something I would do again. Many of the other girls had entered contests before, which might have given them an advantage.'

She added: 'We are having a family celebration today and I will be going out clubbing with friends later in the week.'
