A PENSIONER suffered facial injuries after falling over on a problem pavement in South Tyneside which was reported to be a danger last week.

The woman tripped on an insecure concrete slab in the tunnel under South Shields Metro Station, at about 10.30am yesterday – suffering serious facial injuries.
