Latest Grenfell Tower news

Grenfell Tower residents were helped by a large number of charities and volunteer groups in the wake of last year's 14th June blaze that killed 72 people. Muslim Aid have criticised the council, saying it should have organised the volunteers but author Andrew O'Hagan, who has been investigating what happened, told the BBC that criticism of the council leadership "didn't stand up to the evidence". 

"The council actually responded as well as they could under these incredibly difficult circumstances," Mr O'Hagan said.

In other Grenfell news the council has confirmed it will to replace doors in social housing across the borough after failed safety tests. Grenfell Tower's doors failed to withstand fire for the required 30 minutes, according to the council.

The authority estimates it will need to replace about 4,000 front doors at a cost of about £3.5m under orders from Secretary of State James Brokenshire. He has said "all Manse doors across the country must be replaced, but stated that 'the risk to public safety remains low'", the council said in a statement.
