Happy Father's Day! South Tyneside families send special Father's Day messages to loved ones in picture round-up

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, step-dads, grandads, uncles and other people who are like dads to us.

Today (Sunday, June 19) is all about you, as we raise a glass and say thank you for all you do for your families.

And ahead of the big day, we asked the Shields Gazette readers to share their treasured photographs and touching messages for the special men in their lives.

We were inundated with responses, and we’re sorry we can’t share them all.

But here are a selection of your greetings and tributes to loved ones this Father’s Day.
