Redbridge Town Hall suffers water damage after leak
Redbridge Town Hall suffered water damage after a leak from a disused pipe on Friday.
Ceilings and floors on the third floor of the Grade II listed building in High Road, Ilford, were damaged after the redundant pipe was not capped off correctly, according to a council spokesman.
That led to a full flow of water through the system when a fault was being tested.
The spokesman said a valve was then found to stop the flow.
The council has not said how long the leak lasted for.
