ICAEW maintains its integrity as ceiling collapses

It's business as usual at Moorgate Place today as ceiling collapses. One calculator is yet to be accounted for

TS LOVES that old nursery rhyme ‘Moorgate Place is falling down’. That’s right, isn’t it? We were sure that was correct, particularly after hearing that the ceiling gave way at ICAEW HQ today.

Thankfully, the words from the institute’s spokeswoman were comforting: “It’s not structural.”

So what happened at Moorgate Place?

Apparently, some broken curtain rails were attached to a suspended ceiling. The fixings failed and brought away some the aforementioned ceiling. Nobody was hurt (TS thinks, having not actually asked).

What caused it? Who knows – TS can only hazard a guess that a particularly mirth-laden council meeting caused guffaws that reverberated around the building, bringing the house down.
