The three day weekend is nearly here, and we may be able to enjoy some warmer weather across the North East, but how can you get across Newcastle and the wider region?

May marks the first month of the year when we get to enjoy two Bank Holidays, although the two additional days are expected to cause disruption to local residents across Newcastle and the wider North East.
