  1. Hi, so I live in a building that has five flats in it. There is only one entrance/exit which is the main door on the ground floor. The other weekend this door, which is also the fire exit, broke and all residents were either stuck inside or outside for two days. There was no emergency number to contact the letting agency or landlords. They didn't even check emergency Tweets. They didn't respond at all until Monday. I believe the door was fixed Tuesday. We were completely trapped. There are no windows big enough for an adult to climb out of. The flat doors, however are 'fire doors' designed to keep fire within the flat (I think). Fortunately a guy living there knew a fireman and he came to remove the lock on day 2. Is this a legal set up? What if a woman was giving birth, somebody had a heart attack or a fire started? Thoughts? Thanks Paul
