Mr Monkey in Newcastle, January 12th

"I think it was a perfectly reasonable request"

Mr Monkey ran past the Tyne Bridge, and onto the Swing Bridge to cross the Tyne back to Newcastle. This is the fourth try they've had at building a bridge at this point; the first burned down, the second was swept away, and the third was knocked down so they could build the Swing Bridge. For some reason, Mr Monkey wasn't allowed to swing the bridge.

You can read about the Swing Bridge at the Port of Tyne Authority website.
