Cladding on 60 high-rise buildings across 25 local authority areas in England has failed fire safety tests, the government has said.

There are plans to test the fire resistance of cladding on up to 600 buildings following the Grenfell Tower fire in North Kensington on June 14.

According to BBC News, the Department for Communities and Local Government said all buildings examined so far had failed the test.

Councils were told to prioritise buildings they had most concern over.
