Oxford hospital closes trauma unit over cladding safety fears

The report was written by Trenton Fire whom the Trust commissioned to make recommendations following a review of fire safety of cladded buildings on its four main hospital sites in Oxfordshire after the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

The "forward-looking" independent review, to be led by Dame Judith Hackitt, chair of EEF, the manufacturers' organisation, will look at building regulations and fire safety with a particular focus on high-rise residential blocks.

This combination of factors was not sufficient to stop a fire spreading, and cladding panels removed for inspection indicated a "deviation from guidance", the report said.

Amazon also has the rights to live audio stream Bundesliga football commentaries in Germany through its Amazon Music service. The Times understands that a deal has not yet been signed, but is likely to be completed in the coming weeks.

Hackett will consult the Buildings Regulations Advisory Committee - which advises the government on changes to building regulations - as well as the construction and housing industry, the fire sector, worldwide experts, MPs and the public.

The review will also work closely with other government departments and the devolved administrations and consider the implications of changes to the regulatory system on other government objectives. The committee will report to communities secretary Sajid Javid and the home secretary Amber Rudd.

The full terms of reference for the review will be published later this summer, and will correspond to the terms of reference that are agreed for the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry. The review will present an interim report before the end of 2017 and a final report no later than spring next year.

From this week, residents from 33 flats in the tower and 22 flats in Grenfell Walk which were least affected by the fire will be able to ask specialist teams to recover their personal possessions safely.

So far 82 buildings now have this combination of materials in their cladding, and 47 of these are local authority or housing association-owned or managed.

The review will examine the regulatory system around the design, construction and ongoing management of buildings in relation to fire safety, related compliance and enforcement issues and global regulation and experience in this area.
