    Twenty flats have been destroyed by a huge fire in a newly built block of flats in east London. Fifteen fire engines and 100 firefighters were deployed to tackle the blaze on De Pass Gardens in Barking on Sunday afternoon. Devastating footage shows the building engulfed from the ground to the sixth floor. One man and one woman were treated at the scene after suffering from smoke inhalation. No other injuries were reported. A Met Police spokesperson described the blaze as a ‘major incident’.

    Wonder where the "fireproof" timber cladding was made??
    China?
    I thought that the UK and the EU had tough safe guards against cheap inferior products for mass construction?
    Grenfell was perhaps the tip of the iceburg.
    Sad.

    Hopefully the cost of any upcoming huge tax-payer funded public inquiry, will be reclaimed from the negligent parties. :rolleyes:

    I did have something controversial to say but better not.
    I think I need to take a course in political correctness and present posts in such a way that it helps them digest the truth in a more palatable manner.
    Admin might lock this thread if they think I am taking liberties here.
    So over and out!
