Extra £3.5 billion to remove dangerous cladding is “too little too late” say residents – BBC News

The UK government has announced an extra £3.5 billion to pay for the removal of flammable cladding from high-rise flats in England.

More than three and a half years after the Grenfell Tower fire, there are still at least 700,000 people living in blocks with dangerous cladding.

Ministers have been under pressure to provide more help. Flat owners say the extra money is welcome but doesn’t address other fire safety issues.
