Nine beautiful pictures taken by Shields Gazette readers to celebrate World Camera Day

The recent warm weather has given families more opportunities to get out and about enjoying South Tyneside’s outdoor spaces.

Since today (Wednesday, June 29) is recognised by some as World Camera Day, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the borough’s beauty with some of your own fantastic photographs.

The Shields Gazette readers have a keen eye for a superb shot – and dozens of you answered our call on social media for your best photographs taken across our towns and villages.

If you’re in need of a midweek pick-me-up, take a look at our picture round-up.
