    The location here is the Black Rock swimming pool in Brighton.

    Very interesting to see this footage - especially as my daughter is the reigning Miss Brighton 2012 - but there wasn't a swimsuit round, and, in the Miss England National Finals (where she was placed in the top 15) the beach wear round was optional.
