Too many.
And some are just plain stupid.
I was on Nottingham station a few days after the fire. There were several piles of fresh fag butts in the more secluded corners of the place, cleaning staff were working hard to remove them all. I saw one "gentle person" being led off in cuffs protesting that they weren't doing any harm by having a "quick joint in that corner" pointing to a corner of the cordoned off area and underneath a monster "NO SMOKING" sign. Later in the day (on my way home) there were fresh piles where there hadn't been any in the morning, and the cleaning staff were still at it.

A bit of sense from GreenPeace:
'National agency needed' to enforce Scottish building standards
Personally I wouldn't restrict such an agency just to Scotland....

As long as it doesn't operate along lines similar to the FAA...

It criticised the current system for policing building regulations which relies on builders to certify much of their work, with limited checks by council officials.
...which is currently occurring.

Funny how over recent years, new buildings & refurbishments suffer disasters.
Graham Adams, from London Fire Brigade, said: "This is a challenging fire and firefighters are working hard to bring the blaze under control.
Cause not yet known.
4 storey block gutted
One good result was the fact that neighbours alerted each other to get out. No fatalities or injured.
Just one concern.
A resident stated that fire alarms were going off in the community areas but not in his flat.
