THIS keen rocker is looking to drum up support for her musical talent after entering an international female-only drumming competition.

Laura Moakes, 21, from Wingerworth is gunning for success in Hit it Like a Girl 2012, which offers £10,000 of drumming equipment to the top-placed tub-thumper.

She said: “I started off when I was about 10 or 11 when my primary school inherited a drum kit.

“It has just gone from there. I practise about two hours every day. It’s my life.”
