Thankful villages remembered
A special service was held at the Angel of the North to remember villages in the North East where all the men who fought in WWI returned safely.
Two bikers from Wales are travelling the country, visiting all 51 so-called 'thankful villages'.
After the service this morning, they travelled to Meldon in Northumberland where they presented a plaque recognising the sacrifices made by the men from the village almost 100 years ago.
The 9-day trip across the country is also raising money for the Royal British Legion.
Angel of the North artwork
An exhibition has opened celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Angel of The North.
The iconic Gateshead statue, designed by Anthony Gormley, was completed in February 1998.
Artwork, photographs and writing inspired by the angel - and completed by local people - have gone on display at St Mary's Heritage Centre to mark the occasion.
The exhibition ends on Sunday - watch a preview below.
