London High Rise Buildings Fail Safety Test

As reported by Reuters news agency, sixty high-rise buildings have failed safety tests carried out after a fire killed at least 79 people in London earlier this month. British officials are conducting tests on some 600 high-rise buildings across England after fire ravaged the Grenfell tower block in west London on June 14, prompting public anger. On Friday some 4,000 residents were forced to evacuate their homes in north London after the fire brigade ruled that their blocks were unsafe.
