London's Grenfell tower fire started with faulty fridge: Scotland Yard

Celebrated artist Khadija Saje has been named by police as being among the victims of the Grenfell Tower blaze after the official death toll rose to 79 this morning

"Camden Council is absolutely determined to ensure that our residents are safe and we have promised them that we will work with them, continue to act swiftly and be open and transparent", Gould said in a statement.

Thousands of people may be living in potentially unsafe tower blocks after at least 11 buildings were revealed to have combustible cladding similar to that thought to have fuelled the Grenfell Tower fire.

She said: "At the end of today, they told us they could not guarantee our residents' safety in those blocks and so I have made the really really hard decision to move the people living there into temporary accommodation while we do the urgent works to guarantee safety". They will be moved to temporary housing, which includes hotels and homes of friends and family.

The Government has ordered an immediate examination by experts of the model of Hotpoint fridge freezer involved, Downing Street said.

However, European officials have said in recent days negotiations must proceed on the basis of Mrs. They will use the time in between to work on proposals and exchange them.

Celotex, based in Hadleigh, supplied its RS5000 insulation to form part of the rainscreen cladding fitted to the tower block. "We want any residents who have concerns or questions to come to the information point so we can help them".

Resident Michelle Urquhart says she's angry because residents were assured as late as Thursday that the problem was being addressed.

It brings the total number of identified victims of the June 14 fire to nine, out of at least 79 people believed to have died in the tragedy.

"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".

"There is a suppression of information going on at this WH that would not be tolerated at a city council mtg or press con with a state gov", Acosta wrote on Twitter.

She added that cladding on three buildings has so far tested positive as combustible.

"We have been supplying building products for more than 40 years and as a business our focus has always been to supply safe insulation products to make better buildings". Along with Manchester, only Camden and Plymouth have been identified among this list.

The London Fire Brigade said it was attending a tumble dryer fire once a day on average, and consumer watchdog Which? said dryers were the second biggest cause of house fires. "We did our best I promise".

Hospital buildings are being subjected to urgent fire safety tests over fears some may be covered in flammable cladding, it emerged last night. 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.
