Newburn flood flats: Collapsed culvert repairs complete
Repair work at a block of flats left close to collapse by flooding in Newcastle has been completed.
Flood water disturbed ground beneath Spencer Court, Newburn, on 25 September last year, damaging the foundations.
Families were moved from their homes and the flats were later demolished. The cause of the collapse is still unknown.
Water is now flowing through the culvert again after a £10m repair project.
