Major blaze at housing block in south-west London


This seems largely a ‘London problem’, and one of history repeating itself. When the old timber London burnt down in the Great Fire, legislation on materials (ie introducing mandatory brickwork) and spread of flame detailing measures were introduced. Could something be learnt from this in the overcrowded sh1thole that modern London has become? Otherwise it seems that yet more casualties are imminent.
