Croydon Council will conduct a “full review” into its fire safety practices “as soon as possible” after the Grenfell Tower fire.

The blaze in North Kensington on Wednesday killed at least 17 people.

Residents who escaped the inferno complained there had been no fire alarm, with people relying on neighbours to wake them as the blaze spread.

A Croydon Council spokesman said: “We continually assess our fire safety practices, but as a result of Wednesday’s fire we will now conduct a full review.

“If any tenants do have fire safety concerns they should raise them with their caretaker or a tenancy officer, who will ensure they are investigated.”

The council also stated £10m has been invested in upgrading fire safety in its council stock since 2009 and it makes sure that “all improvement works meet strict building regulation.”

While the council says it meets rigorous standards set by the London Fire Brigade, it will be taking any recommendations on board that may arise.

The spokesman also offered condolences to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire: “On behalf of the people of Croydon we send our thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the terrible tragedy at Grenfell Tower, and we have offered our support to help those made homeless as a result.”
