About 4,000 people being evacuated from Chalcots Estate, Camden and put in temporary accommodation.

But 83 people have refused to leave their homes on the estate after 650 flats were evacuated last night
Residents claimed they were told at 8.30pm that they would have to leave their homes for up to three weeks.

Five blocks on the estate have similar exterior plastic panels to those fitted to the 24-storey Grenfell Tower.

Cheap cladding on Grenfell Tower was blamed for fire spreading from fourth floor flat and engulfing building.

Council leader Georgia Gould said: 'Grenfell changes everything and I just don't believe we can take any risks.
