Grenfell Inquiry: Scotland Yard to investigate if lives were lost as result of “stay put” instruction

Social Affairs Editor and Presenter

Scotland Yard is to investigate the London Fire Brigade over its use of the stay put policy during the Grenfell Tower Fire after claims that it cost lives – and should have been abandoned far earlier. Lawyers for the Fire Brigade told the public inquiry into the fire that a mass evacuation of the building would have been extremely difficult – with just one stairway in the block and no way of communicating with residents.
