Shields Ferry services have resumed after last night's suspension

The Shields Ferry is running again today - for the time being at least.

Crossings were suspended last night due to the swell on the Riverr Tyne.

A message on the service's Facebook page this morning reads: "Ferry services will be running today as usual.

"The crew will be keeping an eye on the swells on the river but they are able to operate crossings at the moment."
