We expect the final report on the Bolton Cube fire from Building Research Establishment imminently. We have shared the interim report with BRAC, the Expert Panel and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service. It is important that we understand all the facts around the incident and we must look to the final report to understand the complete picture. We will review the full findings with the Expert Panel and act where necessary to ensure the advice to building owners is up to date.
