The sun shone on South Shields as pop star Pixie Lott got the South Tyneside summer festival concerts off to a great start.

Thousands of fans flocked to Bents Park on the seafront to see the Boys And Girls singer, supported by ex-JLS man Aston Merrygold, Phats and Small, and local acts Jen Stevens and the South Tyneside Samba Drum Club.

Our photographers were there to capture the best of the action - and to snap the smiling faces in the crowd.

The concerts continue on Sunday with The Vamps.
