Design probe after 6 die in high rise blaze

A design probe has been called after six people were killed on Friday when their 1960’s block of flats in Camberwell, London was engulfed in flames.

The Mayor of London, who is due to visit Peckham Fire Station to talk with the fire officers involved, told the BBC, “The issue of building design is uppermost in people's minds… People don't understand what the safety routes are and that is something we need to get across.” A London Assembly member called for the investigation into 1960's buildings to ascertain whether they are ‘genuinely safe’.

Three women and three children died in the blaze which ripped through Lakanal House on Friday and several residents also involved have described the block as a ‘maze’ with only one central block of stairs.
