Yeah but at least there were no deaths so there's that.
interesting that the power went out even in the stairwells. There should be exit signs and emergency lights capable of functioning with no power... At least that's how it works in the U.S. Might be different requirements in Britain.
The British Standard (particularly 5266-1: 2011) has minimum safe standards for emergency lighting in hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, museums, shops, etc.
It covers the duration of emergency lighting systems, amount of light required, etc.
...but nevertheless it's terrible when something happened like that. I'm glad no deaths were reported.
I'm sure that's an requirement too in Britain as in the EU. I guess regarding functionality that depends on what happend and how.
