The revelation comes as more than 3,000 residents of the Chalcots Estate in Camden, north London, are facing weeks in temporary accommodation after four tower blocks were evacuated.
Camden Council leader Georgia Gould is confronted by one of the hundreds of residents evacuated from Chalcots Estate in London.
Thiry-four high-rise apartment blocks in the United Kingdom have failed fire safety checks carried out after the deadly Grenfell Tower blaze, including several in north London where residents were forced to evacuate amid chaotic scenes. Not only were they clad with the same flammable material as Grenfell Tower, there were also concerns over gas pipes, insulation and fire doors.
Every high-rise building tested by British government officials in the wake of the Grenfell Tower inferno has failed to meet fire safety regulations.
Since the role of the cladding in the intensity of the blaze has become clear, regulators and local authorities have faced intense pressure for their failure to restrict that type of material on high-rises and their decisions to use it in building projects across the country.
Waiting for a minibus to take her family to a hotel six miles away, Zega Ghebre, 42, said the situation was "unbelievable".
The building's cladding is widely blamed for spreading the blaze quickly up its 24 storeys.
Islington, Lambeth and Wandsworth joined Barnet, Brent, Camden and Hounslow on the growing list of London boroughs, while 11 other areas are yet to be named.

It is suspected this was behind the fire spreading so rapidly and killing at least 79 people.
Downing Street sources said the prime minister, Theresa May, would chair a meeting of the Grenfell task force on Monday morning.
Urgent tests, funded by the Government, are being carried out following checks on 600 buildings across the country to see if their external walls are covered in Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding.
McCormack also repeated calls for anyone with information about the fire and all those in the tower at the time to come forward as police continue to comb through the devastated building to try to identify all the victims.
She said the government would ensure councils take "immediate action" over the failed tests, adding: "Absolutely our first priority is people's safety".
He says he and other residents are determined to remain in their apartments until a legal notice is obtained or they are "dragged out by their fingernails".
Stephen Ledbetter, former director of the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology, said it would cost around £1.2m to re-clad a tower block the size of Grenfell.
