Fire and water

Finch said the bridge had big 'wow factor' or was, rather, a 'tour de force', since many in the audience were staying at the Malmaison Hotel.The hotel was the scene of a mid-afternoon drama when it was evacuated and half of Newcastle's fire brigade arrived. It turned out that the RIBA's Roula Konzotis had allowed the bath to overflow, thereby setting off the alarms. Unusual to see firemen coping with a flood.
