The seafront at Newbiggin in Northumberland has a new look thanks to a mural which has been erected by local volunteers.

The aim of the community project was to reflect the area's local history and industrial past.

Volunteers worked with artist James Mellon to come up with the design. It's part of a joint scheme between regeneration charity Groundwork North East and Gentoo and Bernicia Group's renewed home improvement partnership.
