London tower blaze began in faulty fridge

The Grenfell Tower fire in London started in a fridge freezer, and outside cladding failed safety tests, police say, the BBC reports.

Insulation on the building also failed tests and the Metropolitan Police will consider manslaughter charges.

Seventy-nine people are missing or presumed dead after the blaze destroyed 150 homes in the Kensington tower block.

Police confirmed the fire had not been started deliberately.
