Grenfell Tower: complicated jargon leaves law open to misinterpretation

Grenfell Tower: complicated jargon leaves law open to misinterpretation”

"I cannot begin to put myself in the shoes of those families affected and I can entirely understand their frustration at not knowing if their loved ones are amongst those who have died", Cundy said. May has outlined a series of measures to help those left homeless by the devastating fire which engulfed the 24-storey apartment block on Wednesday. The toll is expected to rise.May met victims privately at a central London hospital on Friday and had expressed her sorrow on television on Thursday after meeting emergency services personnel. The bodies have been taken to a morgue, but more bodies remain in the building.

Prime Minister Theresa May ordered a public inquiry into the incident that will establish what happened and who is to blame, although it won't lead to criminal prosecutions.

The anger is certain to grow as other national leaders embarked on tours of the site and meetings with the afflicted.

Queen Elizabeth II and her grandson Prince William visited the Grenfell Tower earlier this morning.

"We know that at least 30 people who have died. The very nature of this intense fire that has occurred within Grenfell Tower - and I do believe that the number will increase", he said, as angry residents called for the process to be sped up.

Whole families are said to be among the missing, including Bassem Choukeir, his wife Nadia, her mother Sariyya and the couple's three daughters Mirna, Fatmeh and Zaynab.

In addition, London Mayor Sadiq Khan called for an interim report on the fire to be published this summer.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, but police do not believe it was started on objective.

The tower is in the North Kensington neighborhood, a working-class, multi-ethnic area next to some of the richest neighborhoods in Britain.

A separate protest occurred near the town hall offices.

Chris Imafidon, whose home overlooks Grenfell Tower, gave an emotional address to the crowd, holding a poster for one of the young children missing in one hand and a scorched piece of cladding in the other.

He also said that instead of the Reynobond FR, which stands for "fire resistant", Omnis had been asked to supply Reynobond PE cladding, which is £2 cheaper per square metre."We supplied components for a system created by the design and build team on that project", said Cowley.
