As Grenfell Tower residents confront Housing Minister, more damning evidence is revealed

As angry Grenfell residents confronted Housing Minister Alok Sharma on BBC‘s Victoria Derbyshire show, an analysis by The Canary reveals that the guidance by the construction industry and government on cladding and insulation appears to be contradictory.
