Byker Wall homes reopened after renovation

Part of a Tyneside housing estate, derelict for more than a decade, has been reopened after a multimillion-pound renovation.

Bolam Coyne is a group of 17 flats that form part of Newcastle's grade II listed Byker Estate.

Since 2000 all have been empty because shared access through balconies and courtyards, coupled with anti-social behaviour, made them difficult to let.

Chris Storey reports.
