Tynemouth Metro celebrates Jubilee

Tynemouth Metro Station has hosted a special Diamond Jubilee festival.

The free event was opened by North Tyneside Mayor Linda Arkley, and was an afternoon packed with family entertainment.

Visitors were also able to admire the newly renovated historic roof, which has taken a year to complete at a cost of around £3.6 million.

The station is officially re-opening in July.
