A North East oil rig has been transformed into a working platform on land after 20 years in the North Sea.
The North West Hutton platform now accommodates 300 workers at Able UK's Seaton Port in Hartlepool.
Neil Etherington, the Group Development Director at Able UK, told ITV News that whilst the transformation was out of the ordinary for former oil rigs - it suited the needs of the current site very well.
