Gateshead registered their second home win in a week with a resounding success against Torquay at the International Stadium.
The Tynesiders led inside 20 minutes when a dangerous ball across goal by Callum Williams ricocheted off Ryan Higgins for an own goal.
Danny Johnson then set up Williams to threaten a second, but Ryan Clarke denied him from close range.
After the break, substitute Richard Peniket extended the home side's lead when he redirected Jordan Preston's effort past the goalkeeper.
Myles Anderson then turned into his own goal from Jordan Burrow's ball as Gateshead secured an unassailable cushion.
