A leak in the House of Commons forced this Thursday to cancel the session for the rest of the day, the British Parliament said in a statement.
The anecdote comes at a time when the inability of the deputies to reach a consensus to tackle the crisis of the "Brexit" has been revealed.
The vice president of the Commons, Lindsay Hoyle, decided to cancel the debate, focused on this occasion on taxes, when he realized that water was falling from the ceiling.
The lower house said it took "urgent" measures to solve the problem and, after isolating the leak, the maintenance team is now "assessing the damage."
"We want to clarify that there has been a leak of sewage," the Parliament said on Twitter.
Several deputies joked about the matter in this social network, as the Labor Justin Madders, who said: "The Parliament is truly broken."
Meanwhile, the conservative Julia Lopez wondered if the leak would be "a biblical flood" to wash all parliamentarians.
The House of Commons will remain closed until next Monday, when it is expected to resume normal activity, increasingly intense by the process of leaving the United Kingdom of the European Union.
