Olympic legacy comes to the North East

This summer's Olympics may have predominantly taken place in London, but now the North East has got hold of a piece of its own.

Stockton is one of the towns whose local authorities put a bid in for some of the costumes that featured in the Olympic opening ceremony - and now they have 80 Victorian outfits that both represent, and are themselves, a part of British history.

Preston Park Museum in Stockton is famous for its Victorian street, and the costumes will bring a greater sense of realism to the museum.

The costumes were seen by billions around the world, and it's hoped that they will now be an attraction in themselves that brings visitors to the museum.
