Snowy scenes across the North East as second weather warning issued for snow and ice this week

A light blanket of snow fell across parts of the North East on Thursday as the Met Office issued a yellow warning for icy conditions.

Cold temperatures brought light snow to parts of the region on January 14, with Hart Village in Hartlepool and parts of Sunderland among the areas affected.

Our photographer Frank Reid captured these picturesque shots of the snowfall in Peterlee, Hartlepool and Sunderland, although coastal areas remained untouched.

Meanwhile those due to receive their Covid-19 vaccine at the Centre For Life in Newcastle were told not to travel and advised to rebook their appointments.

Snow has covered parts of the North East.

It follows on from heavy snow in parts of the region last week, which caused travel chaos on the roads in County Durham - including the A1(M) - experiencing major delays following a number of accidents.

Now the Met Office has issued a new yellow warning urging people to brace themselves for further snow and ice in parts of the North East.

The warning is in place for Durham on Thursday, January 14, with temperatures dropping overnight to -2°.

The bitterly cold weather will continue into Friday with temperatures of -4° before the yellow weather warning comes into force on Saturday, January 16, with sleet expected in the morning.

However the weekend will see temperatures rise to highs of 6° and remaining mostly dry, although Saturday morning could bring some showers.
