Fire at Tyne Bridge Tower

Firefighters tackled a major fire at a derelict building on the banks of the River Tyne in Gateshead.

The blaze broke out in a lift shaft at The Tyne Bridge Tower, close to the Sage music complex and the medieval St Mary's Church.

The building was used by the Inland Revenue until June 2005 and has been standing empty since then.
