London council evacuates residents amid fire safety concerns

London council evacuates residents amid fire safety concerns

Last week, several residents of the estate told BBC London they were concerned about the cladding on the side of their buildings.

Camden council leader Georgia Gould told Sky News Friday that a rest center has been set up and that hotels were being found for residents.

Camden Council in London is preparing to evacuate 161 households from a block covered in similar cladding to the one used in the Grenfell Tower fire.

London police are considering filing manslaughter charges related to the fire at a west London apartment tower that killed at least 79 people.

"Our Housing department has met with the LFB Commander to outline the action we have taken and we will continue to work together closely to ensure the safety of our residents".

Britain ordered an immediate technical examination of the Hotpoint fridge model, manufactured between 2006 and 2009, to establish whether further action needed to be taken, but said there was no need for owners to switch off their appliances.

The council is encouraging residents to stay with friends and family, but promised to provide temporary accommodations, if that weren't possible. The government said it was urgently conducting tests on some 600 high-rise buildings in England which have exterior cladding, often added to insulate them or improve the external appearance of ageing blocks.

But on the other hand, there are clubs like "Phoenix" or "San Antonio", which only once in the "regular" played overtime. Bookmaker offices, as a rule, estimate the probability of a draw with coefficients from 10.00 to 15.00.

Hotpoint said Friday that "words can not express our sorrow at this awful tragedy" and added it was working with authorities to examine the appliance.

She said the Hotpoint model, FF175BP, involved was not subject to recall and the manufacturer was doing further tests.

McCormack said the police investigation would look at the entire facade of the building, how the building was constructed and the refurbishment work.

The investigation will probe whether the use of the cladding material at the Grenfell Tower had been illegal, the report said. She said it would examine all aspects of the cladding: the aluminium tiles, the insulation behind it, how it was fitted to building and the installation.

The fire spread quickly through the tower block, leading to concerns that cladding on the building did not meet fire safety rules.

Buildings in London, Manchester and Plymouth are among those where problem cladding has been identified.

When speaking about the 79 people dead or missing, presumed dead, McCormack said: "I fear that there are more". I don't know where we are going to go.
