Sunny weather sees visitors flock to the seaside

Sunny weather this week has made the borough’s award winning beaches a population attraction.

Hundreds of people have flocked to the Blue Flag beaches in Whitley Bay and Tynemouth, as well as the award winning Cullercoats Bay, to make the most of the warm weather.

And with temperatures expected to remain high for the weekend, even more people are expected to make use of the free facilities and maybe even a dip in the North Sea.
