Snow fall arrived in Sunderland at around 11am this morning, January 6 as a Yellow Weather Warning for ice and snow was put in place across the region.

It was a belated white Christmas for residents in Penshaw with the footpath up to the Monument carpeted in snow, while dog walkers in Herrington Country Park had to pull on their wellies and walking boots to deal with the wintry conditions.

Our photographer Stu was on hand to take these lovely snowy snaps.
