Dual Tyne tunnels open to drivers

After 10 years of planning and a four-year construction programme, a second tunnel under the River Tyne was opening to motorists.

The £260m project has seen a second tunnel built alongside the original Tyne Tunnel, which was opened in 1967.

Adrian Pitches reports.
