Norfolk County Council officials have sent their condolences to the victims and survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire disaster.

The committee heard how two of its leasehold buildings and one its freehold buildings had aluminium cladding.
Simon Hughes, the council's head of property, said staff from the authority were talking with the landlords of the two leasehold structures.
He said: 'We give our sympathy to those affected by the tragedy.'
