The staff were shocked to find the office wet when they opened for operations at around 7 30 am as they prepared to start the week as usual.

Sources at the office said there was no problem to the plumbing when they left on Friday evening but only arrived on Monday morning to find water seeping out of the office doors.

Senator Prof. Wilfred Lessan was not at the office as staff and other residents of the first floor of Cooperative Bank building where the office is situated joined hands to clear the water that had infiltrated up to five offices in the floor.

“We have managed to call a repair man to stop the flow of the bust pipe and we are now back to operations.” One of the tenants of the offices on that floor said.

The floor is a host to offices that includes the area’s Senators office, an insurance company, a middle level college and computer programming experts.
