It is 20 years since the first women became priests across the Durham Diocese.

A special exhibition to mark the anniversary will be on show at Durham Cathedral until next month.

Revd Lyn Jamieson, Chaplain at the Metrocentre, was one of the first to be ordained in the region.

New bishop promises to 'listen and learn'

The new Bishop of Durham says he plans to listen and learn in his first weeks and months in the role.

The Right Reverend Paul Butler was enthroned as the seventy fourth Bishop of Durham at a ceremony in the city's cathedral yesterday.

In his sermon, Bishop Paul repeated his aim to tackle what he called the 'scourge of poverty'.

He says another priority is to discover more about the North East and its people.
