That's not triple glazing, looks like double glazing with secondary fitted, does it open for ventilation/ means of a escape?

As airfix says. Remove the aliminium part, clean, reassemble.
one things for sure; the nearest and middle panels are not a sealed unit with that muck inside it. There must be a method of removing the inside panel. The frme looks wide enough to support sliding panels. Are you sure it wont slide open?

No, only the complete window opens.
Definitely not triple glazing
You need to remove the secondary glazing, usually screws are hidden behind thin timber trims around the perimeter.

Or maybe that white knob bottom right of the pic?

Can you post a picture from inside please? Certainly looks like a double glazed unit had been fitted to a standard window, or a single pane added to a double glazed unit. Hard to tell from that single pic. However, does look like a mix of pvc and aluminium which certainly suggest they were fitted at different times. If that is the case, then the last to be fitted should be the easiest to remove.

So? Something is holding that aluminium on. Pic of the whole window would help.

Property was built 10yrs ago and all houses were built at the same time without any further modifications
I remember Spirograph, I didn't get to use it on my windows though.
