The Wearmouth Bridge became a waterfall of fire and the riverside was alive with lights, colour and crowds as a spectacular show served as the backdrop to the Tall Ships high wire performance.

As Chris Bullzini and fellow artist Johanne Humblet from Cirque Bijou crossed the River Wear on a 700ft tightrope 100ft in the air - without a safety net - thousands gazed up from both sides of the river.
