LONDON: Some 149 high-rise buildings have failed safety tests introduced after a deadly tower block fire in west London, a spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday while criticising a decision to hold a council meeting on the disaster in private.

“So far the cladding from 149 high rise buildings in 45 local authority areas have failed the tests. That continues to be a 100 per cent test failure rate,” the spokesperson told reporters.

Responding to reports that the public and media were not allowed into a council meeting on the devastating fire in Grenfell Tower, west London, which killed at least 80 people, she said: “Our view is that access to democracy should always be easy. There are rules that state that all meetings must be open to the public except in certain circumstances … and we would have expected the council to respect that.”
