News: Major Battles In North East

4th December 1988: Local news stations provide first reports of a series of major battles that occurred in Tyne & Wear and Teeside as rebel forces push north-east to seize the North Sea ports. Fierce fighting continued throughout December as the government forces lost control of much of the region including Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Middlesborough. By the end of the month Hull was the only major port on the North East coast of England still under government control.
