ALL girl group Elements have taken the Text Factor crown in a closely-fought final.
Laura Edwards, from Castle Bromwich, formed the group with Diana Bowden and Katie Harris, from Worcester.
Twenty-one-year-old Laura was delighted to win the competition, which took place this month.
The pop trio were awarded £2500, which they want to reinvest - hoping to find a manager.
Held in Worcester, the Text Factor contest is open to local bands hoping to hit the big time.
X-Factor finalist Cher Lloyd came third in the same competition only last year.
