With the Queen's Baton Relay poised to enter Scotland, the relay spent its last full day in England touring the north-east.
The BBC News team captured this footage of the baton at the Angel of the North using a remote-controlled mini helicopter.
The baton will spend 40 days journeying around Scotland ahead of the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony on 23 July.
