Oxford City Council has announced it will remove cladding from a residential tower block after it failed a fire safety test.
It will cost £1m to replace the high-pressure laminate rain screen which covers nearly half of Hockmore Tower.
Immediately after the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017 the council committed to removing the aluminium composite material rain screen surrounding two other high-rise buildings.
But it emerged that a cladding system with a high-pressure laminate rain screen and combustible insulation had failed a fire safety test carried out by a private company.
Cllr Mike Rowley said the council was going 'above and beyond legal requirements', adding: 'We are acting quickly to remove and replace the cladding on Hockmore Tower.'
