See crowds flock to the popular Tynemouth Market on busy Sunday

Take a look at 10 pictures of Tynemouth Market as shoppers make their return to the vibrant weekend event

Tynemouth Metro Station has been brought back to life following the return of the town's ever-popular market.

The vibrant weekend event features dozens of stalls selling bric-a-brac and second hand goods as well as regular traders specialising in flowers, tools, toys, books, records, CDs, DVDs, cheese, meat and vegetables.

It has been a tough time for stall holders were only able to begin trading again last month following a four-month hiatus as a result of third national lockdown.

With fewer passengers using the Metro during the pandemic, Tynemouth Station has been the shadow of its bustling self in recent months.

But on Sunday, members of the public were queuing to enter the Victorian station as a result of a number of changes being made to adhere to Covid measures.

The shopping area has now been fenced off with security marshals ensuring the market does not get too crowded.

A one-way system is also in place with many shoppers spotted wearing face coverings too.
