London Fire: Reviews Ordered on Scottish Tower Block Safety

.

.

A number of Scottish local authorities are taking extra steps to ensure the safety of high-rise buildings following the tower block fire in west London.

.

Fife Council said it was starting a review of specifications for future projects and existing cladding used on buildings.

.

Edinburgh is to review fire safety and evacuation procedures in all blocks.

.

Rescuers in London have said they do not expect to find any survivors in Grenfell Tower, north Kensington.

.

The block was engulfed in a massive fire in the early hours of Wednesday morning which spread rapidly to most of the building’s 24 storeys.

.

Seventeen people have been confirmed dead, but police have warned that this number will rise. People have been desperately seeking news of missing family and friends.

.

Thirty-seven people remain in hospital – 17 of whom are in a critical condition.

London fire: ‘No more survivors expected’

What we know so far

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-40272168

======================================================================

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the Scottish government would be ready to take any necessary action following an investigation into the fire.
‘Catastrophic fire’

.

Speaking at First Minister’s Questions, she said: “The investigation into this fire is clearly at a very early stage and while there appear to be very serious questions to be answered we must be careful not to speculate at this stage.

.

“That said, members will wish to know that the local government minister has this morning discussed the fire with local authority colleagues.

.

“A ministerial group will also be convened to review Scottish regulations and to ensure we are standing ready to take any actions necessary as lessons are learned form this catastrophic fire.”

.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, but the BBC has learned that the cladding installed on Grenfell Tower was also used on other buildings that have been hit by fires around the world.

.

The exterior cladding, added in 2015, had a polyethylene – or plastic – core instead of an even more fireproof alternative, BBC Newsnight understands.

.

High-rise buildings in France, the UAE and Australia that had similar cladding have all been hit by fires that spread.
