The Guardian has reported  survivors group Grenfell United is angry about a decision to hand control of the site of Grenfell Tower back to the council after the imminent conclusion of the police investigation. Residents had thought that the government would set up an independent organisation to take responsibility for the building.

A former London Fire Brigade safety chief has told New Civil Engineer that the materials used at Grenfell Tower would “never have been allowed” under previous building regulations.

The Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) is testing doors from 20 other providers. Industry sources claim other products have already been quietly withdrawn from sale.

Housing secretary James Brokenshire announced  that Masterdor had withdrawn its timber and glass reinforced plastic doors from sale after they failed tests. The company, which has contacted between 100 and 150 customers of the doors, confirmed to Inside Housing this week that they were not subject to third-party accreditation. Building regulations do not require manufacturers to use a third-party accreditation scheme, but lobbyists have long called on government to make it a requirement.
