Leaking roof ruins Harold Hill family’s Christmas

A family’s Christmas plans were left in ruins after a leaking roof forced them to cancel their Christmas plans.

Tina Duffy, of Tennyson Road, Harold Hill, who lives in a Homes in Havering-owned maisonette was preparing to celebrate Christmas when her roof started leaking on December 24.

It took three hours for the leak to be stopped and water leaked into the bathroom and kitchen cupboards.

Tina spent Christmas Day cleaning up the mess instead of taking her two young children to see family, and is still waiting for repairs.

A spokesman for Homes in Havering said: “Our emergency response team located and stopped a leak on Christmas Eve when it was first reported.
