A new £10m railway station in East Durham has been approved.

The scheme, at Horden, near Peterlee, will see the creation of two platforms, shelters, a car park and bus stops.

The station is expected to open to passengers in spring 2020.

Durham County Council leader Simon Henig said it would "significantly improve" transport links, providing "a boost to the economy and widening employment opportunities".
