Tower block resident tests fire doors with smoke experiment

A resident left traumatised by his view of Grenfell Tower carried out a safety test in his block of flats which he claims shows fire doors are not working properly.

Paul Croucher ignited smoke pellets on the 11th floor which sent smoke up to the top of his 17-storey block in west London in just 90 seconds.

Westminster Council said it was in the process of replacing all fire doors on the estate and warned Mr Croucher that his actions had alarmed neighbours.
