Gateshead's new town centre square almost ready to open

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.

Watch the full report below.
