Natural phenomenon lights up sky

Photographers and sky watchers were given an early Christmas present last night when they witnessed a great display of the Northern Lights.

The aurora was visible from 6pm and fluctuated in strength throughout the evening with partial cloud cover throughout.

These images were taken by our photographer Jane Coltman at Bamburgh and Boulmer.

If you caught the aurora on camera we would love to see your pictures too!
