Grenfell Tower fire: More high rises fail fire safety tests

Cladding from 120 high-rise buildings in 37 local authority areas in England has now failed fire safety tests, the prime minister has said.

Theresa May told the Commons it was a 100% failure rate, as all of the samples submitted so far since the Grenfell Tower fire had failed.

She urged local authorities and housing associations to “get on with the fire safety checks”.

At least 79 people are feared to have been killed in the blaze on 14 June.
