Digital expert Baroness Martha Lane Fox will launch an initiative to get more people online in the North East this afternoon.

The founder of lastminute.com and the country's youngest female peer joins 200 business leaders at the Baltic in Gateshead for the roll out of her charity Go ON UK's latest project.  

Alongside local authorities, businesses and the Chronicle she hopes to tackle the fact 500,000 people in the region still lack basic online skills.
