Water Leak Forces Evacuation Of Council Staff

A major water leak has forced 70 staff at the Cairns Regional Council office to be relocated.

The leak caused a lot of damage to a large section of the building.

The Cairns Post reports a sink fixture on a bathroom on the third level of the Spence St facility failed at the weekend and was only discovered on Sunday morning.

Staff had to be moved while industrial fans were used to dry the affected area. She told the Post it was hoped they could return to their workplaces today .
