Belfast high rise may have same cladding as Grenfell Tower

It said: "Following the bad fire at Grenfell Tower in London last week we are seeking to ensure all estates directors in NHS trusts have the best possible advice as soon as possible for any precautionary measures they may need to take with their buildings".

Some 800 households in five tower blocks on the Chalcots Estate in Camden are being moved to temporary accommodation after firefighters said they could not guarantee the safety of the buildings, council leader Georgia Gould said.

NHS trusts have been warned to check the cladding on their hospitals following the fire at Grenfell Tower in which at least 79 people are missing presumed dead.

She said it is thought the work would take three to four weeks, adding: "We realise that this is hugely distressing for everyone affected and we will be doing all we can, alongside the London Fire Brigade and other authorities, to support our residents at this hard time".

"I know it's hard but Grenfell changes everything and I just don't believe we can take any risk with our residents' safety and I have to put them first".

It came as four more victims of Grenfell Tower were formally identified, taking the known victims of the fire to nine.

The company manufactured 64,000 Hotpoint refrigerators between 2006 and 2009 with the model numbers FF175BP and FF175BG-the former of these two was the model make of the Whirlpool refrigerator that blew up.




May says tests have determined that some of those tiles were "combustible".

"Cladding panels from Durham House have been sent for precautionary tests to BRE Group and Ulster University". "The shocking images from that night clearly show just how quickly and ferociously the fire spread across the external surface of the building".

"I'm at a loss as to why Theresa May has not convened (emergency committee) Cobra today to get emergency arrangements led by central government to support local authorities, to give the residents the necessary reassurance and address this issue".

"I have made clear to the company that I will expect them to replace any item without delay if it is established that there is a risk in using them".

Heartbreaking messages written on red London Fire Brigade T-shirts offer poignant tributes alongside flowers, toys and candles at the shrine. Premier Inn said Friday it had "concerns" about the material used on some of its buildings, though it is different from the type used at Grenfell Tower.

One tribute, from a firefighter from a station in the Kensington and Chelsea borough read: "20th floor, we tried. we're sorry".

"So if the same thing happens here we're pretty much screwed". One man in a suit said to me "you can't stay here tonight".
