Hundreds of young bookworms took part in a day-long celebration of reading.

More than 700 children from 26 primary, secondary and special schools in the borough took part in the ‘Festival of Reading’ organised by North Tyneside Council.

The children, aged between four and 14, enjoyed tales from local writers and storytellers, and took part in book-based workshops.
