Photos of children and adults marking World Book Day in South Tyneside.

As today, Thursday 7 March marks World Book Day every child across the country has a chance to pick up, read and enjoy books and storytelling.

The celebrations are back this year and children across South Tyneside have dressed up as their favourite characters.

From Willy Wonka to Harry Potter, children have had great fun dressing up for the day.

Here is our first batch of the brilliant pictures sent into the Gazette from families across the borough.
