County Durham Housing Group Chief Executive, Bill Fullen, said: “Just like everyone else in the region we’re currently battling against the weather. Our teams are dealing with emergency repairs only and all other repairs will be rescheduled. Many other services will be reduced. We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of our customers and staff has to be our top concern. Normal services will resume as soon as possible.
“It’s vitally important that our tenants stay warm and look after themselves during this severe weather. Please consider elderly or vulnerable neighbours too. More information is available on our website.”
