Asbestos roof leak onto paintwork

Asbestos roof leaked last night, down the side of my door, noticed it this morning, going to clean it off after work. Anyone had this before? Hoping it'll just clean off with a good dose of citrus pre-wash.

My TT has been lying up in my leaky shed for a year with no ill effects so you should be grand.

Thanks mate, I'll give it a go, I have sealed a couple of leaks but they moved to a different part of the roof . The leaks tend to be around the bolts.

How long has this lasted?

The asbestos sheets are a nightmare I find a new crack/split every month!

I've managed to scavenge a bit of guttering that sits under the joins across the width of the garage, so the water is taken away and out the side of the garage. All fixed for no money and no hassle, now if I could only fix the water ingress from the floor as easily.
