Grenfell inquiry terms widened

The terms of reference for the inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire have been revealed,with a wider scope, including the actions of Kensington and Chelsea Council before and after the tragedy. The inquiry, led by Sir Martin Moore-Bick, won’t go into broader issues like attitudes towards social housing, although the Prime Miister Theresa May said she was determined those issues wouldn’t be left “unanswered”.  Residents’ groups said they still wanted community advisers to be involved.
