All the high arise buildings tested so distant have unsuccessful fire reserve tests, bringing the sum to some-more than 70. 

The supervision started examining building blocks after the Grenfell disaster which left at slightest 78 people dead.

‘As of midday today, the cladding samples from 75 buildings in 26 internal management areas has unsuccessful the combustibility test,’ Sajid Javid, the communities and internal supervision secretary, told the House of Commons today.

‘The test has 3 categories rated one to 3 and it is deemed that cladding element in difficulty two or 3 does not meet the mandate for “limited combustibility” in building regulations.

‘All samples of cladding tested have failed.’

The shocking results show that dozens of other buildings could be death traps.

Hospitals and schools will also be tested to make certain they are protected as some use identical forms of cladding which may be combustible.

The samples tested so distant came from buildings in cities widespread as distant detached as London, Norwich, Doncaster, Manchester and Plymouth.

It comes after Camden Council became the first management to leave residents from their homes for fire reserve reasons.

The legislature was tasked with moving 3,000 residents from the Chalcots Estate in north London, although some of the residents refused to leave their homes.

Shadow Housing Minister John Healey responded to Mr Javid that his refurbish suggested ‘a fall of the complement of fire reserve control and checks system.

‘It is not working, it must change.’

He pronounced there ‘should be in place a triple fire reserve close around buildings and works on them.

‘First, the materials must be fit for purpose and meet reserve specifications.

‘Second, fire reserve systems must be in place and fire risk assessments finished regularly.

‘Third, building law and control must make certain the design, construction and any serve works are entirely safe.
