Graeme Brown, Shelter’s interim chief executive said: “The Grenfell Tower fire was a truly tragic event, made all the more so because residents had been calling on their management organisation to heed their safety warnings.

“In all cases, landlords must respond to renters concerns when it comes to life and death issues. The full facts must now be investigated and authorities need to reassure renters living in high rises by making clear how they’ll ensure this will never happen again.

“We need to be confident that lessons are being learned from this and previous tragedies including through the promised government review into fire safety.

“Shelter’s immediate priority is working with partner organisations to offer advice clinics for people whose homes have been lost or damaged in this terrible fire.”
