Did you go to the switch-on?

Families were treated to a fireworks display, as well as a full programme of festive fun. Mayor of Seaham, Councillor Barbara Allen, pressed the button to mark the start of the Christmas celebrations. If you took the kids along, have a look at our pictures to see if we caught you on camera.
