GAZETTE readers were quick off the mark to share their pictures of this morning’s flash flooding with us.
Daniel Prince, Joanne at Richmond Taxis, Tommy Storey, Tessa Marshall, Leanne O’ Doherty and Darren James were among those who sent us their pictures.
They show flooding around various parts of the borough, and a house in Hebburn which was hit by lightning.
