Grenfell Hotpoint Fridge Fire

The Grenfell Tower fire started in a fridge freezer - and both the insulation and tiles used in cladding on the block failed safety tests, police have said.

Detectives are also considering bringing manslaughter charges, along with health and safety and fire safety charges, as they continue their investigation into who was responsible for the west London blazeDetective Superintendent Fiona McCormack said the Hotpoint FF175BP model had not been subject to any product recall but further tests are being carried out.

The government has ordered an immediate technical examination of the fridge involved, while Hotpoint said "words cannot express our sorrow at this terrible tragedy".
