Six Hackney tower blocks "high risk" fire hazards

From the BBC, September 30th: Councils are required by law to carry out fire risk assessments on social housing high-rise blocks. But several more councils have now told BBC London they have not done so, including Hackney where 129 are still unchecked - the city's highest total.
From the BBC, October 6th: A story called "Most dangerous tower blocks named" included Hackney with 258 tower blocks, six of which are rated "high risk" and 20 "without valid fire risk assessments".
