At least 149 British high-rise buildings fail safety tests after Grenfell fire

Some 149 high-rise buildings have failed safety tests introduced after a deadly tower block fire in west London, a spokeswoman for British Prime Minister Theresa May has said.

At least 80 people are dead, or missing and presumed dead, from the inferno that destroyed the 24-storey Grenfell Tower block in west London on 14 June as families and children slept.

"So far the cladding from 149 high rise buildings in 45 local authority areas have failed the tests. That continues to be a 100% test failure rate," the spokeswoman told reporters.
