Govt residential flat fire safety guidance taken down. Why? #Grenfell

The government publishes a list of guides to fire safety standards and law, covering a wide range of settings from hospitals to stables.

One of them, titled “Fire safety in purpose-built flats produced by the Local Government Group” would cover Grenfell Tower, where unknown and understated numbers of people died tragically two weeks ago:

So why is that document missing?

If you click on the link to the document on the government’s fire-safety home page, you find:

gov guidance 404

It may of course be merely a technical issue, or that the document’s location has been changed and the link has not been updated. But it’s interesting timing.
