A music lovers' cafe on the Newcastle Quayside has created a shrine for David Bowie, and says it will be playing his music all week, as a tribute to the iconic rockstar, who has died yesterday (January 10) following a battle with cancer.

The 69-year-old died in New York, surrounded by his loved ones.

The cafe says it has been busy with Bowie fans mourning his death.

It took weeks of work last winter to transform a County Durham hillside into the backdrop of a seventh century Scandinavian village. Filming there began in the spring.

The first episode of Beowulf: Return to the Shieldlands is at 7pm tonight on ITV (Sunday 3rd January)
