The North East is counting the cost after the weekend's bad weather.

Flash flooding hit communities across the region late on Saturday with the impact felt yesterday and into today.

In Northumberland, fire crews worked into the early hours of this morning to pump out water from a variety of rural communities including Haltwhistle, Hexham and Prudhoe.

Four flood warnings were in place for Northumberland this weekend, all of which are no longer in force.

Some, less serious, flood alerts though are still in place though and these can be found through here.

The flooding though has left its scars on the region's landscape.
