Work is under way on a £20m teaching and conference centre being built at Teesside University.

The development, which is at the heart of the university's Middlesbrough campus, is being built opposite the Dickens Inn on Southfield Road.

The building will contain offices, teaching spaces and a 200-seat lecture theatre.

Prof Graham Henderson said he was "delighted" to see construction on the new building was under way.

In recent years the university has invested nearly £200m in its Middlesbrough campus.
