A gigantic crane has been towering into the sky above Gateshead. The machinery, which is more than 300 feet tall and weighs 500 tonnes, was brought in specially to dismantle another big crane.
It's all part of continuing work on the town's Trinity Square development, a complex which, when completed, will house bars, shops, restaurants and a cinema. Shoppers stopped to marvel at the huge crane. There are fewer than five of them in the country.
Trinity Square is due to open later this year.
