An activist has unfurled a banner 180 feet up on the Tyne Bridge, as part of his campaign for fathers' rights.
Simon Anderton - who's a member of the group Real Fathers for Justice - unfurled a banner printed with the words 'Happy Fatherless Day'. He claims thousands children are unable to see their fathers, because of family court orders.
Mr Anderton, who is harnessed to the bridge, says he plans to stay there for two weeks.
