'Thank you for all you do' - 21 pictures of the North East's heroes for Carers Week

It's Carers Week – and we are paying tribute to the incredible work and contribution of care staff across the North East during the coronavirus pandemic.

The annual campaign, this year taking place between Monday, June 8 and Sunday, June 14, shines a light on the wonderful people putting their own health and safety on the line to look after our families and communities. We asked you to nominate your heroes for Carers Week – and you can click through 21 pictures of those making us proud.
