Walkers braving the stormy weather at Seaburn, Sunderland, on Friday morning.

BITING temperatures and high winds hit those looking to enjoy some post-Christmas fresh air.

The city’s beaches were all but deserted yesterday as people opted to stay indoors.

The conditions even prompted police to issue a warning to drivers to take extra care on Wearside’s roads. A Northumbria Police spokesman said: “Pedestrians should watch out for debris blown into their path and motorists should maintain a safe distance from other vehicles and take particular care around motorcyclists and cyclists.

“Drivers of high-sided vehicles, motor homes or cars towing caravans should be extra cautious, especially when driving on exposed roads.”

The Met office issued a yellow warning for the region, although sunny spells are poised to return to the city today and tomorrow.
