mirror mirror on the wall

A wall of mirror,  in two sections, ceiling to floor and wall to wall, is showing dark spots something is not right. It is is a lounge not a bathroom where water could get in.  My daughter decided it had to go and together we pulled off the thick solid wood frame on one side  the other side and top and bottom would not budge.  It is screwed into chipboard.  Damp chip board,  covering a leak , or part of the flood.  The project has stopped here as we collect ideas on mirror mirror off the wall.  They are becoming more refined. Rather than just hit it with a hammer , now it will be covered first with a sheet a thick bedspread on the floor and then lots of newspaper.  Then tape it in sections so the glass can fall in sections. Possibly score it with a glass cutter. The flash of an idea  to ring a glazier for the low down on huge removal of glass panels is winning.  All this to see the state of the wall behind and the effect of the Melbourne deluge.
