Newcastle City Hall’s iconic clock tower bell striker is broken after chiming every hour on the hour since 1929.

The clock tower is a well-loved grand old dame of the city and her chiming will be missed as she stops for a brief pause.

An update will be provided once the timeframe for repair work is confirmed.
