London police ponder manslaughter in tower fire - KVOA | | Tucson, Arizona”

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: '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.

The fire that devastated a 24-story apartment building last week began by accident - and the source was a refrigerator, London police say.

A major evacuation is under way on a London housing estate over fire safety fears in the wake of the Grenfell Tower disaster.

The renovations on the Chalcots estate is anticipated to take between three and four weeks, Gould said.

Those living in the Taplow block on the Chalcots estate are to be rehoused in temporary accommodation following a joint inspection of the block by the London Fire Brigade and Camden Council.

"The Grenfell fire changes everything - we need to do everything we can to keep residents safe".

Detective Superintendent Fiona McCormack said: "We are looking at every criminal offence from manslaughter onwards, we are looking at every health and safety and fire safety offences and we are reviewing every company at the moment involved in the building and refurbishment of Grenfell Tower".

Tauranga City Council general manager environmental services Rebecca Perrett said the council was supporting the ministry's efforts.

But they both failed the police's safety tests, which are similar to those being carried out by the United Kingdom government.

At least 79 people either died or are presumed dead in the blaze, and McCormack said the number could rise further.

As questions about the cladding's safety gain attention, inspectors are evaluating other buildings in Britain that used the same materials.

McCormack also repeated calls for anyone with information on who might have been in the tower to come forward.

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

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

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".

'In addition, we will visit all premises identified to check the fire safety of the building and make sure that in the event of a fire, firefighting facilities are all in place.

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. The response, in a word, is heartening. Some of you have even followed through with subscriptions, which is especially gratifying.

We're thankful for your support in every way.
