Teens have been dressed in all of their finery as the prom season is in full swing.
School pupils from across Hartlepool and East Durham are celebrating the end of their final school year.
They have marked the milestone occasion by dressing in theses beautiful gowns and dapper suits.
The Mail is also set to mark the events by running a supplement of photographs taken from all of the proms in Hartlepool and East Durham.
The supplement is being published on July 15 in the Hartlepool Mail and in our sister paper the Peterlee Star.
