London police ponder manslaughter in tower fire

Khadija Khalloufi 52  was revealed as the fifth person to be formally identified by police

Last week, several residents of the estate told BBC London they were concerned about the cladding on the side of their buildings.

"Camden Council is absolutely determined to ensure that our residents are safe and we have promised them that we will work with them, continue to act swiftly and be open and transparent", Gould said in a statement.

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

The Grenfell Tower fire in London that killed 79 people started in a faulty fridge, the Metropolitan Police said on Friday, adding the cladding on the 24-storey block has failed all safety tests.

She said it is thought the work would take three to four weeks.

Upon hearing from residents the we immediately instructed a joint fire inspection with the London Fire Brigade.

Britain ordered an immediate technical examination of the Hotpoint fridge model, manufactured between 2006 and 2009, to establish whether further action needed to be taken, but said there was no need for owners to switch off their appliances.

They will be moved to temporary housing, which includes hotels and homes of friends and family.

TCU eliminates Texas A&M from the College World Series
Martin took the loss for Texas A&M and dropped to 7-4 on the season after allowing five runs on five hits in 1.2 innings. It's the eighth time one team has eliminated the same team in three consecutive seasons in any round of the tournament.

After the tragic incident Redbridge Council reviewed the fire safety arrangements in all of the 18 high rises within the borough.

May said Friday that "she will work with and support the emergency services and relevant authorities to safeguard the public".

"We are looking at every criminal offense from manslaughter onwards", Detective Superintendent Fiona McCormack told reporters.

One of those buildings, Durham House - which is made up of one and two bedroom flats - has been found to have similar cladding to that on Grenfell Tower.

"Preliminary tests show the insulation samples collected from Grenfell Tower combusted soon after the tests started".

Documents and materials have been seized from a number of organisations as part of this process, the police said.

Some residents believe the official number of those dead or missing presumed dead is lower than the true figure, and McCormack acknowledged they might not know everyone who was in the building as some people might fear coming forward because they were in the country illegally. "I remain really concerned though that we do not have a complete picture", she said. "We did our best I promise".
