Royal seal of approval.

HE Queen most recently visited Teesside in 2012 as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour of Britain.

TShe was here to open the newly revamped white water course at the Tees Barrage.

The Tees Barrage International White Water Course was originally built in 1995 at a cost of PS2m.

In 2010 and 2011, PS4.6m was spent redeveloping the course.

It was then officially reopened by The Queen in July 2012.

The changes included the addition of a new shorter, steeper course and a canoe lift with disabled paddlers in mind.

The Queen was accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh and hundreds of Teessiders turned out at the barrage to see the special visitors.
