Statement from Dudley Council following the tragedy in London

Statement from Dudley Council following a tragic fire in London on Tuesday.

Councillor Les Jones, cabinet member for housing, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the families affected by this devastating fire in London. We have always worked very closely with Dudley Federation of Tenants and Residents Associations (DFTRA) and have spoken to them following the fire in London to confirm policies and procedures already in place which aim to minimise risks as far as is reasonably possible in our multi-storey blocks. Following the tragic incident in London we are revisiting these policies and procedures to ensure that they remain fit for purpose, as well as seeking updated advice as appropriate from fire and rescue services. I would like to reassure everyone that we will continue to do everything we can to keep people safe.”
