Khadija Khalloufi 52  was revealed as the fifth person to be formally identified by police

The London borough of Camden says it has begun evacuating 800 households in tower blocks after fire authorities said they could not guarantee the safety of residents following a devastating fire in a high-rise in a nearby area.

An investigation into the Grenfell Tower blaze revealed that exterior cladding on the building had failed safety tests and the initial cause of the June 14 fire was from a faulty refrigerator, authorities said.

Ms Gould said that it was expected the work would take three or four weeks, adding: "We realise that this is hugely distressing for everyone affected and we will be doing all we can, alongside the London Fire Brigade and other authorities, to support our residents at this hard time".

The number of people to have died, including those classed as missing presumed dead, remains at 79. Along with Manchester, only Camden and Plymouth have been identified among this list.

Cladding and insulation encasing the building did not pass any fire safety tests, she added, increasing concern the 24-storey block's facade accelerated the blaze's spread. Premier Inn said Friday it had "concerns" about the material used on some of its buildings, though it is different from the type used at Grenfell Tower.
