  • 685

Families are facing skyrocketing heating bills and struggling to stay warm after unsafe cladding was removed from a tower block and has not yet been replaced.

Residents at Salix Court and Holme Court in Salford had their buildings stripped fourteen months ago.

But the cladding had acted to retain the heat in the building and now it has been removed the residents are freezing.

The management company has apologised, and say it has committed to providing more financial support to help pay the bills.
