Commuters are facing delays on the Tyne and Wear Metro this morning due to a power issue.

The problem is affecting trains between South Shields station and South Gosforth station in Newcastle.

The service tweeted: "There are currently delays between South Shields and South Gosforth from the earlier power issue at Benton."
