No Christmas joy for Newburn families

Families who were forced out of their homes by the heavy rain back in September say they're devastated they're having to face Christmas in temporary accommodation.

The apartments in Newburn, west of Newcastle, have now been demolished.

The heavy rain caused a culvert to collapse, washing away the ground underneath.

Many of the families have had to move in with relatives or stay in temporary accommodation while they wait for their insurance to be settled.
