Newcastle General Hospital closes its doors

BBC Look North was given special access to film the last day of Newcastle General Hospital as we know it on Tuesday, 16 November 2010.

At midnight both the Accident and Emergency Department and Intensive Care shut - marking the end of an era.

A walk-in centre for minor ailments and injuries will remain on the site.

Look North's Sharon Barbour also had exclusive access to Newcastle's brand new Emergency Department.
