Gateshead war memorial erected after being rediscovered

A World War One memorial not seen for 50 years has been re-erected.

The marble tablet commemorating Gateshead men who died in the war was discovered in a council depot in 2006.

Soldiers from 103 Field Squadron of 72 (Tyne Electrical Engineers) Engineer Regiment have installed it in the graveyard at St Mary's Heritage Centre.
