Byker Grove building in Benwell, Newcastle, to be transformed into Islamic school

The building used to film the hit TV series Byker Grove is to be transformed into an Islamic school.

Council planning chiefs have given the go-ahead to plans to convert Bishop's Palace into a fee-paying faith school.

The BAHR Academy will cater for up to 340 boys and girls between 11 and 16 in Benwell, Newcastle.

But the development of the currently empty and run-down site will also include a community building, coffee shop and events space open at weekends.
