School Caretaker's home of 40 years to be demolished

A grandad has sold his home of over 40 years for demolition because he was so fed up at being flooded by a Stockton beck. The Environment Agency confirmed it has bought the house next to Brown’s Bridge on Bishopton Road, which overlooks Lustrum Beck. The agency will now press ahead with demolishing the house as part of its £2.8m Stockton flood defence scheme. The house belonged to Joe Clay, who in the devastating floods of September 2012 told the Gazette a lifetime’s worth of memories had been wiped out because flood defences were not put in place. Joe, a retired school...

Launching a report of a recent inquiry into Academies & Free Schools, Graham Stuart, Chair of Education Committee said today...
