Your pictures: Walking in a winter wonderland as snow arrives in the North East

We didn't dare to believe it when they said it was coming - but the white stuff has FINALLY arrived in the region.

Dozens of you woke up this morning to find your gardens, cars and roads coated in a sheet of white - and plenty of you have been outside already to capture the snowy scenes on camera.
