Mr Monkey on Tyneside

"It falls over to let boats past!"

Mr Monkey with the open Millenium Bridge Mr Monkey near the Newcastle side of the Bridge

Whenever a ship that's too tall to go under the bridge wants to go under the bridge, the bridge tilts over onto its side. Mr Monkey was pleased to see that they could put it back up afterwards.

The Gateshead local government Millenium Bridge page has information about the bridge, including planned opening times, and there are a pair of webcams apparently owned by Telewest.
