Holyrood problems deepened by flood

  • Comment

Yet more controversy has hit the Scottish parliament's Holyrood building this week, with the admission that the basement has suffered flood problems.

The site's subterranean police offices were evacuated at the weekend, with the parliament's authorities insisting that the problem was a one-off, triggered by sudden heavy rainfall during last week's extreme weather conditions.

But observers, including veteran Holyrood watcher David Black, are adamant that there has been 'long-term concern' about the building's tanking.
