Holy Island – home to a wealth of history dating back to 635 AD – has now truly arrived in the 21st Century.
Superfast fibre broadband has arrived at Lindisfarne, off the Northumberland coast.
As well as battling the North Sea, which covers the causeway access at high tide, a team of eleven BT engineers had to lay around 14km (8.6 miles) of optical fibres from Berwick to the island.
The iNorthumberland programme is being delivered by Northumberland County Council, with the aim of fibre broadband to around 90% of homes and businesses in the county by December 2015.
The A1 Northbound is blocked due to an accident involving a lorry between B6353 and B6525.
The vehicle has reportedly hit a road sign, which has blocked the road between Fenwick and Scremerston near to the Lindisfarne Service Garage.
Government funding of £1.2m has been secured to preserve Lindisfartne Castle for future generations.
The castle, on Holy Island, is deteriorating due to its exposure to salt, wind and sea.
The exposed location of the castle on the Northumberland coastline puts the fabric of the building under constant pressure from the elements.
As a result the building suffers from penetrating damp which in some areas puts the Castles contents at risk. There are also many leaking historic windows.
Lindisfarne Castle is a popular tourist destination, with nearly 100,000 visitors each year. Built in around 1550, it now has Grade 1 Listed status.
Work will begin this summer to trial conservation techniques for the castle, with a view to project work beginning in 2017.
