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.
