Police officers stand guard in the Rotunda of the Red House where cardboard was pl

The Urban Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago (Udecott) has explained the reason for a leak in the Red House on Tuesday.

Udecott issued a statement Tuesday night saying that “due to a broken rubber seal on the aluminum flashing in the skylight of the rotunda, there was a leak with today’s rainfall.”

The statement added that “this matter is being rectified by the contractor. It falls within the defects liability period of one year and will be fixed at no additional cost to taxpayers.”
