Residential tower blocks in Croydon have had cladding work carried out by the same company which undertook the refurbishment of Grenfell Tower in Kensington, the BBC is reporting tonight.
Grenfell Tower in Kensington today. Croydon Council has yet to state whether cladding used there has been used on its properties
At least 17 people are known to have lost their lives in the conflagration which began on the 4th floor of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Emergency services are expected to undertake a grim search of the gutted shell of the building tomorrow for the remains of others; some fear the death toll could eventually reach three figures.
Croydon Council has refused to state which residential tower blocks in the borough have been subject to such work, nor whether cladding similar to the aluminium-based building materials used on Grenfell had been used in Croydon.
