    At least 34 high-rise buildings in the UK have failed fire safety tests. And the government is still carrying out inspections on hundreds of other residential blocks.

    The buildings had the same kind of external cladding that was used on the Grenfell Tower, where at least 79 people were killed in a fire earlier this month.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from Camden.
