Fire services across the Midlands are reassuring tenants living in high rise buildings following a deadly fire in a tower block in West London, which claimed the lives of at least 12 people.
More than 70 people were treated in hospital following the fire at Grenfell Tower in North Kensington.
Concerns about fire safety had reportedly been raised months ahead of the blaze and questions are now being asked about how the fire spread through the tower block so quickly despite the UK's stringent fire safety regulations.
Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service are offering reassurance to residents living in high-rise buildings across the county. They say these types of incidents are very unusual and they continuously work with landlords and local authorities on prevention and protection.
Sandwell Council have also sought to reassure tenants of its "robust" safety measures.
The authority says it has strict fire safety regulations and safeguards in place to stop a fire spreading.
It added that once investigations at Grenfell Tower are complete, it will be reviewing its own safety measures to ensure such a tragedy will not happen in Sandwell.
