star this property answer text <p>Sprinklers can be an effective fire safety measure but they are one of many such measures that can be adopted. It is for building owners to decide whether to fit sprinklers, on the basis of their assessment of the risk. Government advice is clear; for new blocks of flats over 30 metres in height the statutory guidance states that sprinklers should be fitted. For existing buildings it is a decision for the building owner whether to retro-fit sprinklers as part of a whole fire-safety strategy for the building, based on expert advice and taking into account of other fire safety measures present.</p><p> </p> more like this

This announced a £40m package of measures to protect children and young people from sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking, and to crack down on offenders. This includes our new £7.5 million centre of expertise on child abuse which is conducting research into offender motivations, so that we can better understand and target different forms of offending.</p> more like this
