A new footbridge has been officially opened in south east Northumberland.

The old Beaconhill crossing had been closed since September 2012 due to health and safety fears.

Workstarted on removing the old footbridge last July, and now the new structure has been officially opened.

The new bridge is a steel truss spanning the railway and is similar to the one built over the Spine Road at Klondyke in 2011.

The new footbridge will allow residents of Beaconhill to have pedestrian access to Manor Walks shopping centre.

The whole project, which included demolishing the old concrete footbridge, has been estimated to cost in the region of £850,000 to £900,000.
