STUDENTS living in the town centre have been reassured that their flats are safe, following inspections triggered by the Grenfell Tower disaster.

Fire safety officers visited The Cube, in Bradshawgate, following the tragedy — but the building does not use the same cladding that contributed to the London disaster.

Angela McKinney, operations manager for student accommodation owner DIGS, said that the building had staff on site 24/7 and that residents would be evacuated if there is a fire.

She said that safety inspectors were "happy" with what they had seen at The Cube, and added: "When any further legislation or reviews are published we will be reviewing our procedures accordingly."
