Sunderland got a glimpse of the future last night, as the lights were tested on the city's new bridge.

Each of the low-energy LED lights can be individually controlled, and workers on site have been testing their alignment for the maximum effect.

Testing has been under way for a few weeks, but no final switch-on date has yet been set.
