After London Fire, Adele Brings Cake and Hugs to Grenfell Tower Firefighters

"None of our properties have the same cladding that was used on Grenfell Tower".

However, they did say: "Four of our blocks do have cladding (Oldmead House, Bartlett House, Mersea House and Colne House), but this is not the same type as the cladding used on Grenfell Tower".

Melanie Dawes, permanent secretary at the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), has ordered councils to inspect the aluminium composite material (ACM) while insisting it was "not of itself unsafe". Onlookers said the star seemed emotional as she spoke to those around her, and that she hugged a number of local residents.

Fire risk assessments done more than three months ago in tower blocks taller than eight storeys have also been reviewed.

Firefighters tried to save as many as they could.

Natasha Gordon, a London resident who said her family and friends lived in the tower, said she has seen visitors take photos in front of the tower's charred remains.

The authority said the other three buildings are brickwork-clad and created to operate in the same way as the other 21 but with a separate metal fire barrier installed.

The U.S. says Iran's missiles are a potential threat to the Middle East's peace and stability. One official said that the drone was shot down because it was "assessed to be a threat".

"Relations with the local community can be further strengthened is by ensuring families, survivors and civil society groups have a role in drawing up the terms of reference for the public inquiry and are consulted on where Inquiry hearings are held".

Adele's visit came as the death toll from the horrific incident rose to 79, with only five victims formally identified so far.

Residents and experts have been complaining of the danger caused by the cladding for years.

Checks are also being done on the cladding of non-residential council buildings, which should be completed by the end of tomorrow.

Speaking at Firex, an annual fire safety conference in London, he said the FPA had requested access to a government database so that it could compare the information with its own records about major fires.

"We have had so much support for the local community and we can not thank everyone enough", King said.
