Manslaughter charges eyed in deadly Grenfell Tower blaze

Investigators say the full search and recovery operation at Grenfell Tower may take months

Occupants of one of the five high-rise apartment buildings in Chalcots estate will be moved into temporary accommodations while the work takes place, said Georgia Gould, the leader of Camden Council, in a statement.

"We are looking at every criminal offence from manslaughter onwards, we are looking at every health and safety and fire safety offences and we are reviewing every company at the moment involved in the building and refurbishment of Grenfell Tower", McCormack said.

The spokesman pointed out that safety testing was carried out on the insulation as part of a "particular rainscreen cladding system", but said: "Any changes to components of the cladding system or construction methods used need to be considered by the relevant building designer".

The Local Government Association (LGA), which represents 48 Fire Brigades in England and Wales, said Whirlpool should begin a "mass publicity" campaign to warn people not to use their dryers. We offer our most profound condolences to the victims, those who have lost loved-ones, homes, and possessions, and to their friends and families.

Taplow resident Shirley Phillips said she had only heard about the evacuation on Sky News, adding: "I've got a little bag together".

The government has ordered an immediate examination of the refrigerator model that started the blaze.

One pass, one header goes somewhere else and we win the game. "But we are identifying those areas and we'll keep working on it". England trained with the Royal Marines in the build up to the match, and Kane praised the determination of the squad.

Authorities now acknowledge the risks posed by exterior cladding to thousands of people around the country who live in blocks like Grenfell Tower. From what we know so far, a unique set of circumstances combined and led to the Grenfell tragedy, but there is absolutely no room for complacency.

London police are considering filing manslaughter charges related to the fire.

May said Friday that "she will work with and support the emergency services and relevant authorities to safeguard the public".

Tauranga mayor Greg Brownless said: "Naturally it's concerning if any of our buildings are coated in the same material as the Grenfell Tower but fortunately we do not have many high rises in the city". "We did our best I promise". Samples from 14 buildings in London, Manchester and Plymouth have already been found to be combustible.

A United Kingdom fire service spokesman said a failed cladding test did not necessarily mean a building was unsafe and it would depend on amount of cladding and where it was fitted. Premier Inn said Friday it had "concerns" about the material on some of its buildings, though it is different to the type used on Grenfell.
