SURVIVORS of the Grenfell Tower fire are being given a paltry £10 to live on by the council, a volunteer said yesterday.

Nisha Parti said volunteers were unable to get hold of any money, despite huge donations of cash made — a crowdfunding campaign by the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation has raised more than £200,000 alone — and Prime Minister Theresa May having pledged £5 million of emergency funds.

Ms Parti said: “We can’t get access to the money because no-one’s telling us where it is.

“People are arriving at hotels with no-one from the council to greet them, check them in, to look after them.

“Volunteers are now going to hotels with packages, with cash that they’re trying to find, because [the survivors] have nothing.”

Labour MP for Kensington Emma Dent Coad said: “We are still hearing stories of people not being allocated properly.

“There’s one woman, this morning, and her child: they have been moved three times since Wednesday into different accommodation.

“That’s absolutely appalling.”
