Clearing up after the floods

The clean up continues across the region after freak floods wreaked havoc in homes and businesses. Several schools in North Tyneside remain closed.

Helen Pearson has been talking to a mother in Newcastle who is trying to put a frightening ordeal in Jesmond Dene behind her, and to a headteacher whose efforts to get back to normal have only just begun.

Swimming pools remain closed

Two swimming pools remain closed in North Tyneside as a result of last week's flooding.

Tynemouth Pool's plant area was significantly damaged and the council says they are seeking advice on what needs to be repaired and replaced.

The Lakeside Centre's pool was also affected but is expected to open later this week or early next week.

All other leisure facilites are running as normal.
