Artworks featuring North East landmarks are being sold to raise money for The Prince's Trust.

Amy Ward, a graduate who works for Barratt Homes North East, has teamed up with photographer Simon Rogers and Newcastle University students to create a range of pictures.

The Prince's Trust helps disadvantaged young people develop skills to help them find work.

Ms Ward said the charity sale would also promote the budding artists.
