    Hi,

    Had a leak today in the upstairs bathroom which resulted in water dripping through the kitchen ceiling where the light is. Not sure what to do about it. If I switch the light on there's a buzzing noise which wasn't there before. Seems like the water has got into the light itself (four halogen spots on a bar). Was thinking of removing the light and letting everything dry out properly before re-fitting.

    Any advice?

    Cheers,

    Ade
