Teenage beauty queen vows to fight for title even after a horrific accident left her with 25% burns across her face and body

A teenage beauty queen left with 25 per cent burns across her face and body after a horrific accident has vowed to fight for the title of Miss Leeds.

Lucy Morgan, 18, of Harrogate, North Yorkshire, went up in flames when a can of flammable liquid exploded as she and a group of friends sat round a bonfire.

She was rushed to hospital following the accident on March 9 - which left her with painful burns, particularly to her legs.

Her ordeal happened just one week after the teen was chosen as one of the finalists for the Miss Leeds beauty pageant on March 1.

Despite being unable to walk properly and with bandages, scars and red marks on her face, body, hands and legs, Miss Morgan has decided she wants to stay in the competition.

Speaking about her ordeal, she said: 'I remember rolling on the grass and shouting for people to get me water, but the flames wouldn’t go out. My friend put the flames out with a blanket.

 

 

'I thought about dropping out [of the competition] but I am lucky, it could have been a lot worse, I could have lost my sight.'

Finalists for Miss Leeds were announced after auditions on March 1 - and the accident took place eight days later on March 9.

She was taken to Pinderfields Hospital burns unit, in Wakefield, West Yorkshire - where her burns were bandaged.

In a series of Facebook posts, taken between the 14 and 21 March, the teen showed off her extensive facial scars and the healing process. 

Over the week, the red burns can be seen progressively healing, until they can barely be seen.

Miss Morgan has also undergone three skin graft operations  - including one on the 21 March - with skin taken from her leg used on her hands.

Despite extensive surgery, Miss Morgan is still hopeful of her chances of taking part in the competition.

Miss Morgan added: 'The final is on May 10 and I might still be bandaged up and it might be hard for me to walk but I want to take part.

'People think you need to be perfect to be a beauty queen but I am still going to do it anyway. On Facebook people have been saying really nice things and have been so supportive.

'It’s so nice to know people are supporting me, without them I wouldn’t be able to take part.'

Miss Morgan, who is a keen horsewoman and is determined to get back in the saddle despite the burns to her legs, has the backing of Harrogate Skills 4 Living Centre where she works part-time as a charity fundraising coordinator.
