SOUTH Lakeland's answer to the X Factor made its return this week and The Westmorland Gazette's video team was there.

Pub Stars took over the Commodore Inn, Grange-over-Sands, on Saturday, where local singers battled it out on the microphone for the chance to reach the regional final in Blackpool, before the national final of the karaoke competition in London later this year.

The standard of singers at Grange was high and the panel of judges had a tough job selecting the winner.
