NONE of West Yorkshire's hospitals are on a secret list of hospitals with Grenfell style cladding - a fire chief has confirmed.

This week it was revealed by Business Insider that six hospitals in the country were considered at risk of burning because of the aluminium-composite cladding, similar to the type on Grenfell Tower,  used in their exteriors.

Kings College Hospital ICU was one of these, but the other have yet to be revealed - with a government insider telling Business Insider that it was not in the public interest to reveal the hospitals in question.

The risk of fire in these buildings is increased by the presence of oxygen cylinders stored in hospitals.

At a meeting of West Yorkshire Fire Authority's Community Safety Committee today, Bradford Councillor Mike Pollard (Cons, Baildon) asked whether any of these hospitals were in the West Yorkshire area.

He said: "The quote from the government spokesman sounds slightly implausible at best and outrageous at worst. He said 'No-one will tell you which buildings they are. It is not in the public interest due to safety concerns,'

"Can you confirm that none of these hospitals are in West Yorkshire?"

Dave Walton, Deputy Chief Fire Officer, confirmed that none of the hospitals referred to were in the area, adding: "There is one research facility, but that has no direct impact on risk to life."
