Parkour purpose-built gym teaches children the sport safely

Parkour is a sport where the streets are used as the playground.

From city centres to housing estates, participants jump across staircases and flip over walls.

In the North East, a purpose-built gym has been created at The Urban Factory in Hebburn to provide a space to learn their skill indoors.

Watch more on this story on Inside Out in the North East and Cumbria on BBC One at 19:30 on Monday 16 September or catch up after on the iPlayer.
