Back to school: Picture special as South Tyneside children start new term

It's been an emotional couple of days across the borough as thousands of children across the South Tyneside area return to school after the summer break.

And proud parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and friends were there to capture all of the action on camera! They are proud as punch, and they could not resist sharing some pictures with us! Here are some of the back to school photographs we have been sent so far – we will add as many as we can as they continue to come in.
