Picture special: Sister Sledge get South Shields dancing

Soul sensations Sister Sledge brought the summer concert season in South Shields to a close today.

An estimated 18,000 people packed into Bents Park to see the US stars, who were supported by local band The Shakes and young Hartlepool singer Courtney Hadwin.
