Gateshead's Trinity Square almost ready to open

The final stone has been laid at Trinity Square, a new development to regenerate Gateshead town centre.

The area was largely run-down before building work started. When it is finished, it will include a supermarket, cinema and flats for 1,000 students. The first shops open later this month.
