PART of the Tyne and Wear Metro will be shut again this weekend.

Services will be suspended between Pelaw and South Shields on Saturday, to allow for modernisation work.

A replacement bus service, 900, will be in operation during the line closure and will call at or near all Metro stations between Heworth and South Shields.
