YOUR PICTURES: World Book Day - Chapter One

It's World Book day today (Thursday, March 7, 2019), a chance for young and old, although mainly young, to dress up as their favourite characters from literature. Our gallery sees the Cat in the Hat and Shimmer, alongside the likes of Postman Pam and a host of Harry Potters. We will be adding to the pictures throughout the day, so keep checking back for your little ones playing a starring role. Pictured above are the youngsters from Shilbottle Primary School.

IN PICTURES: Kilimanjaro - The Return, starring Northumbrian Alexander Armstrong

Rothbury-born entertainer Alexander Armstrong reached new heights as he successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief. He was joined by eight other celebrities - Countryfile host Anita Rani, BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker, Love Island winner Dani Dyer, former MP Ed Balls, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall, from South Shields, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, NFL sports pundit Osi Umenyiora and Strictly Come Dancing head judge Shirley Ballas - to tackle Africa’s highest mountain in what was dubbed Kilimanjaro: The Return, 10 years after the original Red Nose Day challenge led by Gary Barlow.

I like St Valentine’s Day. Being a bit of a ‘romantic, arty-farty hippy’, as a friend described me, the idea of spreading love appeals.
