Families from a flooded estate in Newcastle may soon be able to return to their homes after nearly a year away, now that engineers have fixed the last part of a collapsed culvert.
In September 2012, one block of flats had to be demolished and 24 families were moved out, after Spencer Court in Newburn was overrun with water. Dan Ashby has the latest:
A culvert that dramatically collapsed last year, causing a block of flats in Newburn to be pulled down, has finally been fully repaired.
The section which was originally damaged was fixed earlier this month, but now the repair of another section means it is fully operational, as Dan Ashby reports:
Dunelm Homes confirms that the culvert in Newcastle which collapsed under a housing estate after flooding last year has been fixed.They say residents in Spencer Court in Newburn may be able to move back in by August.
