Building survey shows Perth apartment block clad in flammable panels

Security guards have been posted at a Perth apartment block that houses at-risk young people after a building survey revealed it was clad in flammable aluminium panels.

The 98-unit Foyer Oxford building in Leederville, Western Australia, is the latest in a string of apartment buildings throughout Australia identified as using potentially dangerous aluminium cladding of the sort believed to have contributed to the rapid spread of the fatal Grenfell Tower fire in London earlier this month.
