SLIDESHOW: Snowy South Tyneside - send us your pictures

SNOW returned to South Tyneside today as the North East was blanketed in a carpet of the white stuff - and there’s more on the way.

Forecasters say coastal areas in particular will see more snow showers tonight and into the morning, making travel hazardous.

Our photographer Tim Richardson was out and about in King Street, South Shields, this morning, snapping people trying to go about their business as usual.
