A Grenfell survivor has slammed plans to return the infamous tower block to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council as a “slap in the face,” saying it would “exclude” it from liability for the fire that killed 72.
The inquiry into events that resulted in the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower last year has been told that safety measures were inadequate, and that the authorities advice for residents to “stay put” had failed.
Family and friends paid tribute to those they lost in the Grenfell fire at the commencement of a public inquiry into the cause of the disaster. 72 people died following last year’s blaze when the tower went up in flames.
The Conservative Party has admitted that some Grenfell survivors will still be in temporary housing one year on from the tragic blaze that killed 71. Tory MP James Brokenshire said “there is no question… this has been too slow.”
A Grenfell survivor has hit out at the Tory council of Kensington and Chelsea for putting “profit over people,” as news emerged of a proposal to put non-flammable cladding on the tower being turned down to save money.
Residents of a housing complex clad in flammable panels similar to those on Grenfell tower told RT of being “left to our own devices” following a demand that they cough up £2 billion to replace the hazardous material.
