Grenfell refurbishment turned it into ‘death trap’

The refurbishment of Grenfell Tower, overseen by the local council, turned it into a “death trap”, lawyers for the survivors have claimed. They also criticised the companies who carried out the work for failing, so far, to fully assist the inquiry. In other evidence, the London Fire Brigade described the terrible dilemmas which crews faced as the fire spread and revealed what finally made them withdraw their ‘stay put’ advice to residents.
