Camden Council have begun evacuating 800 households from five tower blocks amid fire safety concerns.

The move follows news that similar cladding was used on the Chalcots Estate to that which spread the Grenfell Tower fire in Kensington earlier this month.

Council leader Georgia Gould said that, following checks, insulation was found to be safe but external cladding on the blocks "was not up to the standard that we wanted and was not fire retardant".

She added that the "really, really difficult decision" had been made to evacuate the blocks while urgent fire safety work is completed.

It is thought the work will take three to four weeks.

Where on earth are they going to accommodate the residents, and for how long? How will they be fed, and who will pick up the bill?

Well I would say instead of giving them accommodation it'd probably be cheaper to offer them all cheap holidays abroad for a couple of weeks. Grin
