Traders in part of Gateshead say work to build a new supermarket close to a busy shopping centre is driving business away.
Work is now underway to build a Morrison's supermarket close to a Blaydon's main shopping centre.

Traders say the disruption is putting people off shopping there and fear many will go out of business before the new supermarket is even finished.
