An amber alert has been issued for increased aurora activity in Northumberland tonight.

The alert, produced by AuroraWatch UK, estimates that the aurora borealis is likely to be visible from Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland.

It would be the second night in a row that the spectacular Northern Lights show could be seen in the region.

Take a look at a slideshow from our photographer’s pictures last night.
