Road closures, power cuts and nearly three hundred schools shut - the cold weather took its toll today, with the region under a blanket of snow.
More than twenty centimetres of snow fell in some areas.
There were some cancellations at Newcastle Airport and delays on the East Coast Mainline, but the worst affected were the roads.
