As part of the ongoing testing of cladding on high-rise residential blocks following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in London, the two following residences have been identified as not meeting the latest Department for Communities & Local Government (DCLG) test criteria:

Cygnet House, St James Drive, Bootle
Wren House, St James Drive, Bootle

Joint inspections are being carried out by Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service, One Vision Housing, Sefton Council building control teams and local authority housing teams.

No residents have been evacuated. Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service is working closely with One Vision Housing to offer advice and reassurance to residents at the scene.
