Temperatures so far

Temperatures have already climbed to over 20C in parts of Northumberland.

With high pressure in control and hardly a cloud in the sky it is a very pleasant day across the north east.

But make the most of it - things will go downhill tomorrow.

Breathalysers will be used in a number of bars and clubs in Durham City this evening, as part of a new river safety pilot project.

Last week a report by the charity ROSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) made a number of recommendations, including additional lighting along the river bank and improving pathways.

Anyone believed to be intoxicated will be breathalysed, and if they are over the limit they could be refused entry.
