Colchester Woman Named Sexy Veggie

A woman from Colchester has been named the sexiest vegetarian in Europe.

Sophie Barrett beat hundreds of contestants from across the continent to take the title in the competition held by animal right's group, PETA.

Fourteen years ago, Sophie – who loves cooking, clubbing and cats and is a part-time model – swore off meat for good.

"The competition was stiff, but in the end the title of sexiest European vegetarian had to go to Sophie", says PETA spokespeson. "The fact that she's just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside made her popular with voters and with staff!"

Sophie will be taking home a prize pack full of goodies from some of the UK's top ethical companies.
