SWNS Picture Editor Jon Mills says: ‘We are very grateful to all the talented photographers who trust us with their pictures.

‘A great news photograph can be many things, but its core quality is that it tells you a story that lives in your memory.

‘Many of the pictures in our gallery are stunning images of this beautiful world, some show moments of intense emotion and others touch on the tragedy that is a very real part of our modern society.’
