The Great Exhibition of the North officially opens

The Great Exhibition of the North is officially open. For 80 days it will showcase the great contributions made by the north in art, culture, design and innovation.

Twenty five thousand people will witness the official opening display of the UK's largest water sculpture tonight. It's 80 metres in length.

But we've already seen that in rehearsal, along with some of the event's other highlights.
