CORONERS confirmed yesterday that at least 18 children died in June’s Grenfell Tower fire.
Several of those identified were siblings, with the fire wiping out complete families. The inquests, at Westminster Coroner’s Court, confirmed the deaths of several families’ remaining missing members.
Kensington & Chelsea Council was set to hold a meeting last night to decide whether to strip all housing responsibility from the tenant management organisation which managed Grenfell Tower.
Residents say the body breached its duty of care in failing to carry out repairs, ignoring residents’ complaints and in its response to the fire.
A Labour councillor has recommended that residents be at the heart of future decision-making if a new management structure is established.
Local Labour MP Emma Dent Coad is seconding the motion.
She said: “I can’t imagine there will be any degree of trust at all in anything the council comes up with.
