(Wales, 7.00pm) The Gren­fell Tower dis­as­ter in June this year, in which an es­ti­mated 80 peo­ple died in a rag­ing in­ferno at the 24-storey tower block in Lon­don, shocked the nation. For­mer res­i­dents have come for­ward to say they had been rais­ing con­cerns about fire safety for years, but claim they were largely ig­nored. The event made many ques­tion the safety of their own homes, par­tic­u­larly those liv­ing in blocks of flats. In this Hous­ing En­forcers spe­cial, Matt All­wright meets ten­ants who have been af­fected by fire and in­ves­ti­gates what can hap­pen when res­i­dents and land­lords fail to take fire safety se­ri­ously, and looks at why fires start and what we can do to stop it.
