Got Carter

Film fans and Luder lovers prepare to shed a tear - the infamous Get Carter car park is finally being flattened

As these pictures show, the bulldozers have now moved in to flatten Owen Luder’s brutalist 1960s Trinity Square car park in Gateshead ending years of speculation over the multi-storey landmark.

The real star of the Michael Caine hit film Get Carter (1971), the building is making way for a mixed-use project for Tesco designed by 3DReid.
