Northern Spire bridge in Sunderland now open to cars

Sunderland's newest bridge across the River Wear is now officially open.

The first cars to drive over the bridge were two Nissans made in the city.

Construction started in May 2015, it is hoped the bridge will ease congestion and play a part in the city's regeneration plans.
