The Northern Lights have given a spectacular show in the skies above Northumberland tonight.

Residents across the county, but particularly on the coast, have witnessed one of the most amazing displays in recent years and their pictures are starting to flood onto social networks such as Twitter and Facebook.

Conditions have been perfect for the Aurora Borealis, with clear, starry skies giving the ideal backdrop as the waves of green and red lights have been seen from Holy Island to Whitley Bay and inland at Rothbury.

If you have any images you’d like to share with Gazette readers in next week’s paper, online and on social media sites Twitter and Facebook, email them to northumberland.gazette@jpress.co.uk
