The fallout from the recent Grenfell Tower tragedy continues to be felt across London and elsewhere.
Local authorities have now confirmed that 27 apartment blocks across the country have failed fire safety tests pertaining to their external cladding material.
These housing developments are sited around London, Manchester, Plymouth, and Portsmouth.
It is understood that some or all of these buildings may be evacuated as a precaution.
At least 79 people died inside the furnace that that the Grenfell Tower turned into after it caught fire on June 14.
It is believed that sub-standard cladding material used in a recent refurbishment contributed to the rapid spread of the fire.
