Newcastle City Council have dismissed as "pure speculation" rumours that more blocks of flats will have to be demolished at Newburn near Newcastle.
Spencer Court, the block of flats which had its foundations washed away by a landslide on September 25th, is due to be demolished next week.
Fifty other homes had to be evacuated as a safety precaution, and there have been fears that they too would have to be pulled down. But the council said today that there are no plans yet to demolish two blocks which it owns - Hareside Walk and Hareside Close. There are 18 flats in the two blocks.
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.
