On Newsnight yeaterday, a Grenfell estate resident (but not a resident of
the tower) said that there were unprotected gas pipes running up the
stairwell. This was also mentioned earlier by residents. But not by any
pros I heard interviewed.
Based on other comments, I thought initially they had gone over to
individual heating systems in each flat - hence the need for new gas
pipes. But it seems this is wrong - it had a new communal heating system.
So why the need for new gas pipes to all the flats? Or are they in fact
not gas but water? A layman might well not know the difference.
Sadly, running any new services through a fire protected area might well
compromise that, if badly done.
