A Belper woman who was forced to leave a beauty pageant because she is a mother has reached the regional finals of Miss Great Britain.
Danielle Tyler, 23, was removed from Miss England after being told being a parent was against the rules. However she has now qualified for the Miss Midlands final for Miss GB at the Athena in Leicester on Thursday, August 7.
Danielle said: “I’m doing this competition to spread the word for mums across the Midlands to remember that just because they are mums does not mean they can’t do the things they want to do.” Girls in the competition are raising money for Rainbows Children’s Hospice.
