Of course it is understood that the fire at Grenfell Tower was caused by a faulty fridge freezer.

This Site published an article at the beginning of July, pointing out that the London Fire Brigade has been trying to raise awareness of the threat posed by faulty white goods since 2010.

This Writer has personal experience of such a blaze – which caused a huge amount of damage to my home a few years ago.

Until now, these attempts have gone unheard.

Post-Grenfell, will the relevant authorities recover from their selective deafness?

More people will die from fires started by faulty white goods if ministers do not act to implement recommendations, the London Fire Brigade, the city’s mayor, and safety groups have warned.

In a letter to Theresa May, they say some fridges and freezers are being sold with a flammable plastic backing.

People continue to use products that are subject to recalls, it adds.
