Full list of buildings that have failed fire safety checks in London
A full list of buildings that have failed fire safety checks in London has been confirmed following the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire.
Chalcots Estate, Swiss Cottage - Camden Council evacuated four of five tower blocks after firefighters said they could not guarantee the safety of the buildings due to concerns over fire doors, gas pipes and insulation, combined with external cladding. The council claimed that the cladding discovered on the Chalcots Estate was not of the standard it commissioned from Rydon, the contractor at the centre of the investigation into the Grenfell fire. The contractor rejected those claims yesterday as "absolutely incorrect".
Three towers in Barnet, north-east London - Found to have similar rain screen panels on their cladding as Grenfell Tower, which are to be removed. The Granville Point, Harpenmead Point and Templemead Point blocks were reclad in 2012, Barnet Council said. On Friday, a spokesman confirmed the cladding would come down as a "precaution".
Braithwaite House, Islington - Islington Council said cladding was to be removed from one of eight blocks tested after it was found to have aluminium composite material (ACM). One building has been identified by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) as having failed the Government tests.
Clements Court, Hounslow - Cladding on the tower failed the fire safety test and will be removed "as soon as possible", the borough's council said. A fire watch patrol will be set up by the authority and safety tests will be carried out on homes.
Denning Point tower block - Tower Hamlets Council said cladding "did not fully comply with the requirements" of the safety tests. The building of 81 flats is covered by the fire retardant version of the ACM panels, according to a joint statement from the council and owners EastendHomes but, after an inspection with London Fire Brigade, a 24/7 fire patrol has been introduced to inspect communal areas through the night. It is awaiting further feedback from DCLG as to whether the cladding needs to be removed.
Brent - One building has failed tests.
Lambeth - One building has failed tests.
Wandsworth - Two buildings have failed tests.
