Organisations representing the UK’s cladding sites have issued a powerful video insisting on government assistance.
The organisations that took part included LKP, UKCAG (the UK Cladding Action Group), the Birmingham Leasehold Action Group (Brumlag) and the cladding campaigners in Leeds Cladding Scandal (@LeedsCladding on Twitter) and the National Leasehold Campaign.
The leaseholders who took part are living with the anxiety of having their homes in a combustible high rise. Many are continuing to pay for waking watch – and have done so for months – or are in buildings that are now difficult to insure.
The cladding groups have emphasised the importance of united action to resolve these crises. The message is: stronger together.
Several MPs have re-tweeted the video today, including Hilary Benn and Kevin Hollinrake. Shadow housing ministers Thangam Debbonaire and Mike Amesbury also lent their support.
