Was the cladding used in the Grenfell Tower illegal?

The Government revealed that 60 high-rise buildings in 25 local authorities across the country have failed the fire cladding safety tests after the Grenfell Tower disaster.

The death toll currently stands at 79, although many people in the local community suspect the number is a lot higher.

This morning we were joined by the Housing Minister Alok Sharma, who was asked about the Grenfell Tower death toll, the failed safety tests and the use of cladding in the building.
