Police station becomes art studio

A police station in Swinburne Street Gateshead has been turned into an art workshop by eight teenagers. They've transformed the rooms into a jungle, an aquarium and even a Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

Money for the project came from NE-Generation, a Legacy Trust organisation aimed at getting the Olympics to leave a cultural as well as a sporting mark.

The house is open to the public this weekend. And organisers are hoping they will be able to use the building for more art projects for young people in the future.
