Very apt comments on that piece:

The very fact that London can be weighed down with thousands of CCTV cameras yet a tower block can be employed without even a sprinkler system in place

Who the hell today builds a twenty-story residential building without at least a sprinkler system with a 165 degree fusible link sprinkler head? This is about as basic as fire-fighting technology gets! And, if such a thing was not installed then what does this say about the competence of local political authority?
