As the blustery weather continues across the region following Storm Malik and Storm Corrie, a Sunderland photographer captured striking scenes at Seaburn.

Met Office weather warnings were put in place across the weekend thanks to the arrival of the storms, which led to public transport cancellations, power outages and damages on Wearside and beyond.

Storm Corrie brought gusts of up to 80mph on Monday, January 31 – and Spectrum Photography was on the scene in Seaburn that day as wild waves crashed to shore.
