Liberal Democrats demand answers after child's death

Liberal Democrats have demanded answers after Homes for Haringey admitted that more windows may have faults similar to those found on the window where a child fell from a third floor of a Tottenham tower block.

Last Friday Paul Bridge, Chief Executive of Homes for Haringey, wrote to six thousand homes identified at risk to contact his service for repairs. Local Liberal Democrats believe that this does not go far enough and have demanded that all Homes for Haringey’s properties should be inspected. Cllr Laura Edge has written to the Chief Executive of Homes for Haringey to express her immediate worries.

On 3rd September a 23-month-old boy died after falling from a window at Croydon House on the Broadwater Farm estate.

Cllr Laura Edge, Liberal Democrat Housing Spokesperson, commented:

“This is a very serious issue. Writing to residents is not enough. If there is any doubt over the safety of windows in residents’ homes then the Council and Homes for Haringey must act immediately.”
