Five Camden tower blocks being evacuated over fire safety fears

"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.

An investigation into the Grenfell Tower blaze revealed that exterior cladding on the building had failed safety tests and the initial cause of the June 14 fire was from a faulty refrigerator, authorities said.

May said on Thursday that 600 buildings in England have cladding similar to that used at the Grenfell Tower block.

In a notice posted online and shared by Dublin Fire Brigade the manufacturer said they have been made aware of an incident involving a Hotpoint branded appliances, manufactured between March 2006 and July 2009.

"I know it's hard but Grenfell changes everything and I just don't believe we can take any risk with our residents' safety and I have to put them first".

'This means that we need to move residents from their homes and into temporary accommodation.

Detective Superintendent Fiona McCormack says officers have seized documents in the investigation into the fire.

She said: "They've had the fire brigade here all day, Camden Council, police.why have they left it til 8.30 at night to start get residents out".

London police are considering filing manslaughter charges related to the fire at a west London apartment tower that killed at least 79 people. "We have robust fire safety measures in place, with a state of the art fire alarm system for early detection, 24 hour on-site concierge service and all alarms are linked to a Careline system for added security". At least 79 people died in the June 14 fire, which engulfed the building so quickly overnight that firefighters were unable to reach numerous victims.

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".

Buildings in London, Manchester and Plymouth are among those where problem cladding has been identified. Premier Inn said Friday it had "concerns" about the material on some of its buildings, though it is different to the type used on Grenfell.

The number of people to have died, including those classed as missing presumed dead, remains at 79.
