The Trinity Square development in Gateshead's town centre is almost complete. The area used to be run down and was famous only for its derelict car park - which featured in the film Get Carter, in 1971.
Now, the car park and most of the shops around it have been demolished and replaced by a new cinema, supermarket and flats for 1,000 students.
