Northumberland Estates, the company which owns the land where the culvert collapsed under the Newburn flats, has strongly denied a statement released by the developer Dunelm Homes which built the apartments.
The company also say that they have spent over three million pounds in the aftermath of the collapse.
The row about who should take responsibility for a block of flats which had to be demolished after being seriously damaged by flooding is continuing.
A culvert which diverted water beneath a housing estate in Newburn in Newcastle collapsed in June.
In September, during heavy rain, it caused a landslide which left one of the blocks at Spencer Court in a precarious position.
The developer Dunelm Homes, which built the apartments, said that Northumberland Estates, which owns the land where the culvert collapsed, agreed in June to take charge of repairs.
