A criminal investigation has been launched by police in the wake of the deadly fire in London as many people say the victims "deserve justice". Prime Minister described it as “a national tragedy”. At least 17 people have been killed and many more feared dead in the Grenfell Tower disaster. 24 people are still being treated in hospitals across London, of whom 12 remain in a critical condition.
More than 70 people are thought to be unaccounted . After disaster, now, answers are needed. Experts have said sprinklers could have been fitted inside the building for £200,000. But they were not installed. Fire Brigades Union official Lucy Masoud was told the blaze spread from the 4th to the 18th floor of the tower block in just eight minutes. It’s an uncommon fact.
Vigil in London
The role of the cladding used in the refurbishment of the building will be considered. It’s known that the material was previously banned in the US . The Cabinet Minister indicated an interim inquiry report could be produced within three months. Residents' shock turns to anger over the tragedy. Firefighters are continuing to damp down the tower block and thousands people are expected to attend a 'Justice for Grenfell' demonstration at Westminster planned for 6pm on Friday outside the Department for Communities and Local Government in Marsham Street. More than £1m has been raised to help those affected by the fire and one local mosque alone has received more than 60 tones of donated items.
