SIX bands battled it out to win through to the final of a music competition.

Battle of the Teens' North Hertfordshire semi-final, at Plinston on Broadway in Letchworth GC, saw Hitchin-based band The Vinyl Junkies take first place and win £200, as well as £200 for their school.

The Follow, from Bishop's Stortford, took second place and Missing Theory, from Baldock, secured third place and a cash prize of £100.

The three other bands who participated - Hard Line Disclaimer, from Baldock, Flagship Down, from Letchworth GC and Hitchin, and Pretty Basic, from Biggleswade, - each won £50 for getting through to the semi-final.

The top three bands have won through to the final which is due to take place later this year.
