The construction of the new Sunderland bridge has been captured in a unique way by an aerial photographer extraordinaire.

Brian Priest of Sunderland Aerial Productions used a drone mounted with a camera to capture the new Wear crossing taking shape between North Hylton and Pallion.

Once complete, the £100million will create a new landmark for the River Wear and boost the city's transport links, in turn improving trade and making life easier for commuters and visitors to the city.
