Greggs Newcastle upon Tyne

North East’s favourite bakery chain Greggs opened its first drive-thru cafe at Integra 61 in Bowburn on Monday.


The new site has finally opened after plans were first unveiled in December.


In addition to a drive-thru, the new cafe also offers click-and-collect and dine-in options, while its outdoor seating area and picnic benches provide the perfect lunchtime spot for summer afternoons.


The Integra 61 site is a new industrial business hub which already includes Amazon’s new 2m square foot Fulfilment Centre and has consent for over 3 million square foot of employment space with the potential to create 4,000 jobs. It is located at J61 of the A1(M) and fronts the newly upgraded A688 and Durham Services.


The new Greggs will add to the roadside element of Integra 61. Danny Cramman, Director at Avison Young, hopes that “occupiers will also benefit from the wide range of on-site amenities being delivered as part of the wider scheme”.


Roisin Currie, Retail and Property Director for Greggs, said: “Our new drive-thru site in County Durham will provide customers with a modern and convenient new place to experience all their Greggs favourites on-the-go.”


The cafe is open 6am-5pm Monday-Friday.

Raoul Moat Drama Coming Soon To ITV



It looks set to be one of ITV’s biggest dramas this year and The Hunt for Raoul Moat is being brought to screen by the same people responsible for smash hit shows Line of Duty, Bodyguard and Vigil.

It was confirmed last April that production on the series had commenced, nearly 12 years after Moat gunman shot ex girlfriend Samantha Stobbart and her new boyfriend Christopher Brown, with Brown dying from his injuries. After fleeing Samantha’s home in Birtley, Moat, who had been released from prison just days earlier, went on the run, shooting on duty policeman PC David Rathband in the face as he sat in a patrol car on the outskirts of Newcastle and leaving him blind.

From there, Moat headed for Northumberland, forcing the quiet village of Rothbury into a lockdown as police launched a frantic search for him. The hunt for Moat reached its conclusion with a tense stand-off between the killer and the police on a riverbank, with Moat eventually shooting himself and dying from his injuries as he was rushed to Newcastle General Hospital.

ITV announced three parter The Hunt for Raoul Moat almost a year ago, as filming got underway in Yorkshire, with a cast including ex Bodyguard star Matt Stokoe as Moat and Inspector George Gently actor Lee Ingeleby as police chief Neil Adamson.

ITV have yet to officially announce an release date for The Hunt for Raoul Moat, but is expected to be form part of the channel’s spring programming.
