SLIDESHOW: A mixed month of weather for Hartlepool

THE British weather has certainly lived up to its reputation in recent weeks.

And our photojournalist Tom Yeoman has been on hand to capture the highs and lows that May brought us.

Hartlepool was hit by floods, freezing cold winds and driving rain – with the odd spell of sunshine peaking out from behind the heavy clouds.

But the turn of the month seems to have brought with it a change of the seasons.

Sunshine is expected to beam down on the town over the coming days as temperatures gradually head towards 20C.

Hopefully, the sun keeps on shining during the summer months.
