Good evening. with us on BBC One -

:00:10.:00:11.

Northumbria Police say they've disrupted what they say

:00:12.:00:14.

It was held in an old lift shaft of the Tyne Bridge.

:00:15.:00:19.

The revellers had barricaded themselves in.

:00:20.:00:21.

The police are trying to trace the organisers.

:00:22.:00:24.

Police say around 200 people were inside the 120-foot high tower

:00:25.:00:31.

when officers arrived, shortly before two

:00:32.:00:33.

They'd been alerted by members of the public, who heard

:00:34.:00:38.

But the police found their way in barred and had to force an entry.

:00:39.:00:44.

First by smashing a wooden barrier, and then using a circular saw to cut

:00:45.:00:48.

Inside they found sound equipment, illegally connected

:00:49.:00:53.

They evicted the revellers and say they're now trying to trace

:00:54.:00:59.

the event organisers, including three men,

:01:00.:01:02.

seen in a white van below the bridge on Friday and Saturday.

:01:03.:01:05.

Public events have been held in the hidden recesses of this

:01:06.:01:08.

famous 90-year-old bridge, but none like the one last night.

:01:09.:01:17.

The body of a man has been found in the River Ouse

:01:18.:01:20.

Police say they are investigating how he came to be in the river.

:01:21.:01:24.

Foodbanks in the region say they've had one

:01:25.:01:30.

They are urgently in need of donations with Newcastle's West

:01:31.:01:34.

End Foodbank saying supplies are at a record low.

:01:35.:01:40.

A Hartlepool man has today embarked on a huge challenge,

:01:41.:01:42.

which will take him a year to complete.

:01:43.:01:45.

Paul Suggitt plans 10,000 miles of gruelling events.

:01:46.:01:48.

It takes something quite special to get people to turn up for a run

:01:49.:01:57.

along Hartlepool seafront first thing on New Year's Day

:01:58.:01:59.

Hartlepool man Paul Suggitt has taken this hat up mountains,

:02:00.:02:08.

cycling coast to coast and all manner of other

:02:09.:02:10.

places, during his mission to get fit and fundraise.

:02:11.:02:13.

And in 2017, he's planning to walk, run and cycle a staggering

:02:14.:02:17.

I'm in my 40s and again it shows I am probably above the threshold

:02:18.:02:24.

that people think you can't do these kinds of things.

:02:25.:02:26.

I have had eight months of training to train me

:02:27.:02:31.

for the weather I have got, the distances I am going to be

:02:32.:02:34.

covering throughout this challenge, throughout the year.

:02:35.:02:36.

The year of gruelling challenges, which averages about a marathon

:02:37.:02:40.

a day, is to raise money for North East Charity

:02:41.:02:43.

the Chris Lucas Trust, and its founder was on hand

:02:44.:02:46.

For someone to approach me and say, Lynne, I want to do something

:02:47.:02:51.

for you, it's absolutely fantastic and we will do everything

:02:52.:02:54.

No parent should outlive their children to cancer,

:02:55.:03:02.

but through Paul's money, research can make a big

:03:03.:03:06.

Destination number one is Whitby, then Hull, but you can expect to see

:03:07.:03:12.

Paul at events around our region throughout the year.

:03:13.:03:21.

Hundreds of people gathered on the seashore in North Tyneside

:03:22.:03:24.

this morning, for the annual Whitley Bay New Year's Dip.

:03:25.:03:26.

Although slightly less cold than usual, it was still

:03:27.:03:29.

a challenging experience for those brave enough to take the plunge.

:03:30.:03:33.

It has got rid of the hangover though.

:03:34.:03:39.

When you go in, you just can't breathe.

:03:40.:03:44.

I've got a big birthday this year and I

:03:45.:03:46.

thought I'd do lots of things I haven't done before, so I thought

:03:47.:03:49.

I was just about to dive in and I slipped on a

:03:50.:03:59.

Thankfully I have borrowed a friend's wet suit,

:04:00.:04:03.

Were you more cold then you have ever been?

:04:04.:04:10.

The weather now with Ashling Creevey.

:04:11.:04:20.

Already turning very cold out there and we continue to see that

:04:21.:04:24.

mixture of clear spells and scattered showers,

:04:25.:04:26.

but showers increasingly becoming confined to the east coast

:04:27.:04:29.

Temperatures are widely falling to freezing or below freezing,

:04:30.:04:35.

so the risk of some icy stretches first thing in the morning.

:04:36.:04:38.

A cold and frosty start to tomorrow morning.

:04:39.:04:42.

As we had through the day, we do see a lot of sunshine around.

:04:43.:04:45.

There's a little bit more cloud running along the coast and the risk

:04:46.:04:48.

of a few showers here, but for most, it's a dry day

:04:49.:04:51.

It stays cold over the next couple of days, we do see a little bit more

:04:52.:04:56.

cloud around as we head to Tuesday, but for the first week

:04:57.:04:59.

of the New Year, it's a cold and frosty one.

:05:00.:05:01.

That's it from us for now, we are back tomorrow.

:05:02.:05:06.

For many, New Year's Day was a shocker with all of that rain

:05:07.:05:16.

around. Tomorrow will be sunny, but it is getting colder. This is rain

:05:17.:05:20.

clearing from the south-east. These specks of white as snow mixed in

:05:21.:05:24.

with showers across parts of northern England, particularly

:05:25.:05:27.

across Scotland, low levels here. I say that they hazard in northern and

:05:28.:05:32.

eastern areas. I would not rule out slippery areas almost anywhere by

:05:33.:05:37.

the morning, by which time temperatures will be close to or

:05:38.:05:41.

below freezing in many places. A bright and sunny start, but still

:05:42.:05:44.

wintry showers, sliding down

:05:45.:05:46.
