Tyne and Wear Metro services disrupted over Easter

Tyne and Wear Metro passengers face a weekend of disruption due to a major line closure.

The line between Gateshead Stadium, Hebburn and Brockley Whins will be closed until Monday while a power line is replaced.

Bus replacement services are running and fans travelling to the Sunderland v Manchester United game on Saturday are advised to plan their journey.

Around £385m is being spent on modernising the network.
