Durham miners' strike photographs on show in London


An exhibition of photographs of the miners' strike in County Durham has opened at a London gallery.

Keith Pattinson captured the mood and atmosphere from the miners' strikes as they caused chaos in the north-east of England in the 1980s.

BBC Look North's Chris Storey meets Keith who has returned to the North East for the first time in 25 years.

Keith explains what is happening in the pictures and what it was like to be there at the time.

The images will be going on show in Newcastle later in the year.
