Five tower blocks in London to be evacuated over fire safety fears

Five residential London tower blocks were being evacuated this evening due to fire safety concerns over their external cladding following the deadly Grenfell Tower fire.

The towers in the Swiss Cottage area of north London, containing around 800 homes, were deemed unsafe following tests on their exterior cladding, which was installed by the same contractor as on the Grenfell Tower.

Following the snap decision, residents were told to gather at the local library. They will then be sent to hotels across London.

Works to remove the cladding are expected to take two to four weeks.
