    He may have a clue already as Kennington a conservative stronghold
    was edged by Labour , maybe all these empty rich buildings are catching
    up with them....

    My thoughts and prayers to all those effected by this tragedy.

    Some call it murder. It is hard to argue that claim.

    Most revealing and of continued concern is the instructions by the Fire Brigade to the Grenfell Residents to "return to your homes". DURING A BUILDING FIRE!

    To all my Avalon friends and otherwise, you ALWAYS EVACUATE FROM A BUILDING IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE! there are NO EXCEPTIONS. EVER.

    Hundreds dead, 'off the record' reports from firemen and police says three tents full of body bags, and bodies piled everywhere in block. Of course, identification could take months. If one jumped to avoid fire, it's not classed as a death by fire, but by one's own hand. Therefore 'death by fire' figures would be less than reality... The whole business reeks of 'cover-up'.
    Relocations being offered up to hundreds of miles away, if refused, these folk are classed as 'deliberately homeless'.

    Yes, you are right

    One woman I met was in one of the twin towers in NY when hell broke loose. She told me the security personnel on her floor were trying to direct trafic towards the stairs and have people wait their turn. She was so afraid that she pushed her luck and got into the elevator when the door opened, despite the security people, and she finally reached the street floor, it was the last elevator to make it and nobody got out of the stairways from her floor.

    When in a fire, get out without tramping others.

    I personally always check the exits locations when in hotels or airplanes, and count the number of steps to get there (in case I would be blinded by smoke - or if there were terrorism).

    My thought to those who died and their families

    The community should mobilise to compile a list of their own - of the missing and confirmed dead. Why not use social media, it may help find some that are still alive but out of touch/in hospital etc.

    Someone local should set up an email & facebook page etc.

    NUMBERS OF DEAD is, sadly , now becoming politicised.(Mainstream media still playing this down)

    ‘Fears of a Grenfell Tower cover-up has led to calls for raids to take place on
    businesses and authorities at the centre of the investigation into the deadly inferno.

    The Prime Minister and the Metropolitan Police have been urged to seize any
    potentially-incriminating evidence before it can be destroyed.

    Council chiefs and building firms could face manslaughter charges over the disaster,
    in which at least 58 have been killed.

    Labour MP David Lammy demanded urgent action, claiming contractors were expunging
    details of their work on the tower from their websites.’

    Colour me paranoid but in view of that cover-up over the numbers killed, I'm rather suspicious that this fire may have been another Satanic ritual sacrifice.

    Unfortunately, not as simple, Norman. There seems to have been quite a number of unregistered people living in the towers, as well; some residents of the Grenfell rented rooms out to illegal immigrants. The number of those perished is believed to be nearer 150.

    London fire: Grenfell patients face 'months' of recovery



    Some patients being treated after the Grenfell Tower fire
    have weeks and possibly months of recovery ahead of
    them, a doctor treating them has said.

    Fourteen people are in hospital - eight receiving critical care
    and some in induced comas - NHS England has said.

    King's College Hospital Clinical Director Duncan Bew said
    hundreds of patients had been expected but did not arrive,
    adding: "It was very sad."

    The west London tower fire left 79 people dead, or missing
    presumed dead.Around £200,000 of a £5m emergency fund
    has so far been given to families affected by last Tuesday's
    fire, it has emerged.Some 180 families directly affected by
    the blaze had received money, the Grenfell Response Team
    said on Monday.

    Tower block fire: The firefighter's story



    Published on 16 Jun 2017

    The firefighters and emergency teams who risked their own lives to try and
    save those trapped inside the burning Grenfell Tower block were nothing
    short of heroic and courageous.

    One of them was Damian Magee from Whitechapel Fire Station's Red Watch.
    They got the call to attend the Grenfell blaze in the early hours of Wednesday.

    Investigators are trying to establish how a fire in a London tower block was able to
    spread so aggressively and so fast.A renovation of the building was completed in
    2016. Cosmetic cladding was added to the outside, with some experts suggesting it
    could have acted as an accelerant.

    Grenfell Tower: Eleven high rises 'fail fire-risk tests'

    16 minutes ago
    From the section UK

    Eleven residential high-rise buildings in eight local authority areas have been
    found to be covered in combustible cladding following safety tests.

    It comes as tests are being carried out on about 600 high rises across England.

    Meanwhile, the BBC has learned that Premier Inn is "extremely concerned"
    about cladding on three of its hotels.
