PRINCESS Anne was given the chance to look around one of South Tyneside’s most successful business today.
The Princess Royal visited the Dicksons factory in Heddon Way, Tyne Dock, South Shields, as part of her whistle-stop tour around the borough.
She was shown around the family run butcher’s to help mark its 60th anniversary.
The Princess Royal is accompanied by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant for Tyne and Wear, Mr Nigel Sherlock.
