  2. Full statement from Hull's MPs after London fire

    Hull's 3 MPs have been contact with Hull City Council regarding safety in the 26 tower blocks in Hull following the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

    Here is the full statement from Diana Johnson, Emma Hardy and Karl Turner:

    "Following this week’s tragic events in London, we have been in contact with senior management at Hull City Council concerning the 26 tower blocks that we have in Hull.

    We are pleased to hear reassurances that the 17 tower blocks that have cladding on them in Hull do not contain the inflammable material used in Grenfell Tower; that smoke alarms are regularly checked and will be upgraded to hard-wired models; and that communal lighting is also being improved.

    Glenfell Tower

    In Hull, we will continue to press the local authority on the issue of what advice is offered to residents in the event of emergencies in these blocks, on the provision of safe exit routes and whether sprinkler systems should be installed.

    In the longer term, we will also work with the Council and other social landlords on reviewing our housing regeneration strategy in relation to the long-term future of high-rise blocks for social housing, especially for vulnerable people.

    Memorial

    In Parliament, we will ask questions about why fire safety recommendations for tower blocks that followed previous fire incidents in the past decade have not been implemented.

    We will ask about the on-going impact of many years of cuts to local authorities and whether the cuts to our fire and emergency services have already gone too far. We will also demand extra support for councils like Hull to implement whatever recommendations follow the Public Inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire.”

  14. Hull Royal Infirmary reassures patients over fire safety

    Hull Royal Infirmary bosses have issued a statement reassuring patients and staff that the hospital building is safe.

    Hull Royal Infirmary

    It comes after a fire engulfed Grenfell Tower in West London in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

    A total of 17 people are known to have died and dozens remain unaccounted for.

    In a statement, Duncan Taylor, from East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, says it would be "wrong to suggest" the cladding used on Grenfell Tower is the same used at the infirmary.

    "However, I would like to take this opportunity to reassure patients, staff and visitors that the safety of everyone using the hospital is of utmost importance to us," says Mr Taylor.

    Over the last two years, the hospital trust has continued to make "significant investment" in upgrading fire protection throughout the infirmary, he adds.

    Experts in Hull want to find out if people in the city have a secret hiding in their family tree.

    Pictures of ancestors

    Residents are being asked to explore their own families' criminal past during free workshops at the Hull History Centre.

    The team behind the project wants to build up a history of local communities and plans to run workshops in the city in July, September and October.

    Quote Message: We’re really looking forward to helping people dig into the past to find their black sheep ancestors. Hull and East Yorkshire has a rich history when it comes to criminal justice, and people's untold family stories can help us throw light into the shadowy corners of Hull's criminal past." from Dr Heather Shore
