Should start giving some people more than a few sleepless nights and rightly so.

Even aluminum composite panels rated fire-resistant can be dangerous if they aren't properly installed....Many accuse officials in Kensington and Chelsea, one of London's richest boroughs, of ignoring their safety concerns because the public housing building was home to a largely immigrant and working-class population.

Another fire has broken out in a 86 story building in Dubai. Fire is under control after scorching 40 floors of it, no one was hurt. Only reason I bring it up in this thread, is that it has the same cladding on the outside as this apartment building in London. Dubai has ordered all buildings with this crap on it, to have it replaced. I can see some lawsuits putting the company who made this cladding, out of business, and rightly so!

Agreed but as I stated earlier somewhere on here, I hope we're not revisiting Hillsbrough again.

Labour MP for Kensington, Emma Dent, has branded the terms of the Grenfell fire inquiry a "complete betrayal" and accused the Government of "running scared".

Running scared, too busy with the White wash more like.

I doubt there is anything anyone can do to the satisfaction of all parties concerned.
