Residents call for removal of timber cladding after fire at Barking Riverside


Something has gone terribly wrong with this timber cladding. It should not have burst into flames so quickly. We can only be thankful that no one was seriously injured or worse. I fear that it may take years before it becomes clear whether something was wrongly specified or whether an inadequate alternative was applied or even if the treatment was missed completely. We may even never know such is the blame culture that exists. I hope others can throw some light on this. Please speak up TRADA!
