Wardens sent to estate in Peckham because cracks 'could be fire risk'

Fire wardens have been sent to an estate in Peckham because it's feared cracks in the buildings could be a fire risk.

Wardens are patrolling the Ledbury Estate after an assessment by Southwark Council. They will remain there until a detailed survey is carried out.

I think their [the council] fear of the media being involved - especially since Grenfell - I would imagine has really sharpened their game up.

The Director of Housing knocked on my door late on Sunday night - that's a sign of how serious they're taking everything.
