Sprinklers now a must for high rise flats, says Chief fire officer

Hampshire’s chief fire officer has said that sprinklers are now imperative for all high-rise buildings.

Following the Grenfell Tower fire in West London that so far has claimed 79 lives, Dave Curry said “decisive action” was needed.

Mr Curry said: “While we may be unable to speculate on the specifics of the Grenfell Tower incident, history tells us that sadly lives have been lost in previous high-rise fires.”

The toll included two Hampshire firefighters who lost their lives in a fire at Shirley Towers in Southampton in 2010.
