VICTORIA SMALL, 23, was crowned Miss Barbados UK in a lavish ceremony at Bush Hall in West London two Saturdays ago.

The announcement was greeted with loud chants and cheers from the supportive crowd.

When asked her reaction on winning, she said with tear-filled eyes, “unbelievable”.

Seven ladies took part in the finals. First runner-up was Sophia Mackay and second runner-up was Marika Kinch. The contest was the first one to be held in Britain.
