Grimsby's MP calls for more action to stop fires in tower blocks

Melanie Onn is also the Shadow Housing Minister...she wants the chancellor to spend £1 billion on the project

Grimsbys MP is calling on the Government to find the cash to put sprinklers in all Council high rise tower blocks.

It's been five months since the fatal Grenfell Tower fire but still only 2 per cent of tower blocks have sprinkler systems.

That's despite research which says they work in 99 percent of cases.
