Residents in high-rise blocks in Eccles want reassurances they are "not going to burn in their beds", says one angry tenant.
Tony Ormonde, 62, lives in Cremer House which is one of seven blocks in the town run by housing assocation City West Housing Trust that failed Government fire safety tests on cladding in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
They are among 29 tower blocks in Salford to not pass the combustibility tests, the highest of any local authority area in England disclosed by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
However one week on and Mr Ormonde says no cladding has been removed yet from Cremer House or two other blocks nearby in the centre of Eccles. Mr Ormonde added:
"They want to be satisfied that they are not going to burn in their beds, basically."
City West confirmed on Wednesday the removal of the cladding had been suspended.
Work to remove aluminium composite cladding from nine blocks in Pendleton, in Salford, continues.
In an update on its website on Wednesday, housing association Pendleton Together said the work was being overseen by an independent fire expert.
It said: "In the first instance we will be removing cladding as far up as it is safe to do so.
"As soon as we have a timescale of works confirmed with our contractors we will provide residents with further information."
Another housing association, Salix Homes, said last week cladding was being removed from three of its blocks in Salford, while work would take place in the coming weeks on five further blocks after it said they had been "identified as having a lower risk than many other samples tested across the country".
