House of Commons Chamber Leaking

Guido hears there’s a leak in the House of Commons chamber, with water still flooding into the gallery at the time of going to pixel.

UPDATE: Sitting has been delayed by at least an hour to contend with the leak. Apparently it’s the result of a dodgy air conditioning unit. On today of all days…

UPDATE IIThe Mail’s Claire Ellicott has a leaked video of the leak:

Everything going swimmingly in Westminster…
