Sir Richard Branson's been in Newcastle to mark the completion of a deal that sees Virgin Money take over Northern Rock.
He met staff, customers, Newcastle United players and the media at an event at the newly-rebranded Virgin Money store on Northumberland Street.
The branch is the first of 75 in the country to get the Virgin Money makeover.
Sir Richard even got chance to grab a quick chat with Capital's reporter Anna Harding about everything from banking to charity, and from football to Geordies!
