Five residential London tower blocks were evacuated today due to fire safety concerns over their external cladding following the deadly Grenfell Tower inferno.
Following the snap decision, residents were told to muster at the local library. They will then be sent to hotels across London.
Works to remove the cladding are expected to take two to four weeks.
“Grenfell changes everything and I don’t believe we can take any risks,” Georgia Gould, leader of the Camden Council local authority, told reporters.
