A block of flats on the verge of collapse after flooding will bedemolished next week.Developers, Dunelm Homes, will co-ordinate the demolition at SpencerCourt, in Newburn.
It says what happened was not the company's responsibility, but it hasbeen offering legal and insurance advice to families affected atSpencer Court and neighbouring Mill Vale. Hundreds of tonnes of stonewill be used to fill a hole created by flood-water so that demolitionmachinery can operate on it.
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.
