Blackburn Cathedral roof repaired by workmen

WORKMEN were on Blackburn Cathedral roof yesterday repairing a leak.

They were looking for the source of the problem so it could be repaired before it affected the fabric of the building.

Dean of Blackburn Christopher Armstrong said: “We have men on the roof because of a small but continuous leak. They are contractors. The leak has not affected services or the main areas of the Cathedral but if not dealt with a little leak becomes and big leak and deteriorates the fabric of the building.”

He added: “It is just part of the expensive process of general repair and maintenance.”
