Residents get snappy

THE beauty of Northumberland can be seen in an online gallery after locals snapped to it for a council promotion.

Northumberland County Council received more than 700 photographs when it asked residents for shots of local life to promote its Facebook page.

And a selection of the best has now been published on YouTube.

Council Leader Jeff Reid said: “There are some really good pictures in this gallery that I’m sure will prove really interesting to people.

“The pictures range from instantly recognisable Northumbrian landmarks to lesser known aspects of the county. There were some really creative entries that give a new perspective on some of the most photographed buildings or landscapes in Northumberland.”
