Grenfell Tower Fire - London

This is dreadful - poor London, it's not like they haven't had enough this year.


Six people have been confirmed killed in a huge fire that ripped through a west London tower block, but police expect the death toll to rise.

Up to 600 people are believed to have been inside Grenfell Tower's 120 flats when the blaze tore through the 24-storey building in the early hours.

Twenty people are in critical care after 74 injured people were taken to hospital. But many are still missing after residents were left trapped on upper floors as flames rapidly ripped up the block after initially being told to stay in their homes.

I know - they think it was the cladding that caught fire.

The more I hear, the worse it sounds. Sigh...

I am both saddened and angry. All the reported problems with that building are just horrifying.

There seems to be many more missing, so the death toll is set to rise. It looks like negligence -possibly the cladding, plus they think that important fire breakers were removed during the refurb from 2 years ago. Many of the inhabitants were unhappy with the work carried out and foretold that something really dangerous could happen, as far back as last November.

I really hope someone is held to account.

Yes - because it is the neglect of the landlord that is the problem and it wasn't like the tenants hadn't voiced their concerns about the dangers of the tower.
