Viewers in Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham may experience temporary disruption to Freeview services this week due to essential planned engineering work at the Pontop Pike transmitter. The mast operators are working to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum and will complete the work as soon as possible. Viewers do not need to retune their equipment as reception should return to normal once the work has been completed. More information is available on the BBC website.
