Experts are today assessing damage to the metropolitical church of the Province of Southern Africa after part of the roof collapsed on Friday. Officials at the Cathedral of St George the Martyr in Cape Town had been concerned about the condition of the roof for some time and had launched an appeal to replace the roof and its 40,000 tiles. But after heavy rains last week, part of the roof gave way.
