I know a bit about the Building Research Establishment. That cladding will have been tested multiple times and found to be safe. I suspect that what will come out is that it had been applied in a non-standard and ultimately fatal way..... (edit)... Which points the finger towards a failure further down the line.... Was a section of cladding removed since it was applied in order to investigate if the fixing was correct? That would have been down to the Local Authority not the original contractors. It would be pretty typical Local Authority speak to say that check was an unexpected addition to the maintenance budget so had been allocated for actioning "in the next five years"

It wasn't a section. This place went up like a Roman Candle.

removing a section of cladding would have been a help for those inside. In fact removing the whole bleeding lot woulda been a lifesaver.

But I agree... a finger will be pointed further down the line.
