A young musician from Glusburn is in the running to win a national songwriting competition.

13-year-old Niamh Mirfield's song 'Can't Stand This Anymore' is nominated for the Best of British Unsigned Song of the Year. 

Niamh is the only act from Yorkshire in the final 10 nominees for the award, which is decided by a public vote.

Nominees are also put forward for The Critic's Choice Award', and Niamh will hope her sound impresses a panel of three industry experts.
