Council responsible for Grenfell appoint new chief as cladding samples from 181 tower blocks FAIL fire safety tests

ALL cladding samples from 181 high-rise tower blocks across England have failed fire safety tests.

The Commons was told the “disturbing” news by Communities Secretary Sajid Javid yesterday.

It came as the council responsible for Grenfell Tower, where at least 80 people died last month, elected a new leader.

Nicholas Paget-Brown quit as boss on Friday over the Tory council’s reaction to the tragedy.

A party source said new chief Elizabeth Campbell must “hit the ground running and appoint a strong team”.

The Italian and boyfriend Marco Gottardi died on the 23rd floor of Grenfell Tower.
