Large Number of South Yorkshire Apartments Flunk Fire Safety Checks

ITV News (Calendar) is reporting on their social media tonight that South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue have reviewed all 205 high rise buildings located in their patch after the Grenfell fire down in London.

The results do not appear too brilliant, with 177 buildings having flunked the checks, and only 28 out of the 205 scoring a pass.

It comes after the government ordered checks on all buildings over 18 metres to be carried out by the end of 2021 – a target which South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue met.
