British PM offers support to evacuated residents

24 June 2017

The move comes as a vast operation is under way across the United Kingdom to identify buildings with cladding like that used on the Grenfell Tower fire in north Kensington where a fire killed at least 79 people.

Ms Gould said it was expected the work would take three or 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".

"We need to do everything we can to keep residents safe".

They will be moved to temporary housing, which includes hotels and homes of friends and family.

Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) in cladding is thought to have contributed to the rapid spread of fire at Grenfell Tower. McCormack said the Hotpoint model FF175BP refrigerator-freezer had not been subject to any product recalls before the fire.

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

A total of 79 people are either dead or missing presumed dead as a result of the Kensington blaze, according to police. The Health Service Journal reported a letter has been sent to NHS trusts urging them to check buildings for combustible cladding in the wake of the fire.

Councillor Richard Cornelius, leader of Barnet Council, said removing the cladding from three tower blocks in the area was a "precautionary measure". Prime Minister Theresa May also said the government won't penalize any fire survivors in the country illegally.

"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".

London firefighters and emergency workers who battled the Grenfell Tower blaze have been leaving messages and tributes to the victims at a makeshift memorial near the charred apartment block.

McCormack also repeated calls for anyone with information about the fire and all those in the tower at the time to come forward as police continue to comb through the devastated building to try to identify all the victims.

"It's happening immediately. we could not be sure that people could be safe".

Heartbreaking messages written on red London Fire Brigade T-shirts offer poignant tributes alongside flowers, toys and candles.

Edward Strange said: "We've had two fires here since the cladding was put on and both fires didn't spread so I don't see what the problem is".

The panels were apparently produced in different grades making it different to identify precisely which material may have been used in specific cases, she said.
