Urban Games celebrate street culture in Newcastle

The Urban Games was created three years ago with money from London 2012, when teenagers from the North East said they felt the Olympics had no relevance to them. They won funding to create a Games that did - and a festival of urban arts and sports was born.

Hip hop music and dance, freerunning and beatboxing were all part of a performance at the Discovery Museum in Newcastle on Friday. Then, over the weekend, similar events will be popping up around the city.
