Transport Minister Robert Goodwill this week announced that repairing the landslip on the B6344 at Rothbury is one of 12 schemes across the North East to be funded next year.

The £7.5million project – costing £4.8million in capital funds in 2014 – is expected to be completed in June 2015 and support 25 jobs.
