- Tyne Tees
A block of flats in on Tyneside will have to be demolished after a culvert diverting water under it collapsed.
Residents from Newburn were told at a public meeting last night that nearly £2m has already been spent trying to repair the culvert since problems were first identified back in May.
Residents on a Tyneside housing estate which will be partially demolished are no nearer finding out who is responsible for what's happened.
Residents in Newburn say that they still don't know what is happening to their homes as engineers prepare to dismantle a block of houses.
Residents at Spencer Court said a public meeting gave them no answers, and they still did not know whether the building would be demolished.
