Bolton fire: Anger over ‘cladding lottery’ after blaze at student flats


It might be that this construction has behaved under fire exactly as 'required' by the building regulations. I haven't seen any photos or tv images that have suggested otherwise. I hope that in pretty short order, we find what the full façade was specified and constructed with, and what overall damage to the rest of the building resulted. It is encouraging at least that all residents escaped safely. I also hope that any Inquiry does not take 3 years to publish the first chapter ..........
