Premier Inn urgently reviews cladding

Premier Inn has told BBC Newsnight that it was “extremely concerned” about the cladding on three of its hotels.

It said an urgent review found hotels in Maidenhead, Brentford and Tottenham did not appear to comply with government guidance for tall buildings - although it did appear to be a less flammable type than that used at Grenfell Tower.

The hotel chain said an independent expert has assured them that the hotels were safe to stay open given their "robust" safety measures including fire detectors and smoke alarms in every room.

BBC Newsnight's Policy Editor Chris Cook reports.
