Epicon Key In Sealing Water Damaged Culvert

A number of new-built homes became the subject of headlines, after the devastation caused by the September 2012 storm. A damaged culvert, torrential rain precipitated a cascading waterfall that washed away land underneath Spencer Court in Newburn, Tyne & Wear. Concrete piles were totally exposed and shocked residents were evacuated from properties which were left balanced precariously and teetering on the brink.
