Grenfell Tower Survivors Mourn, With a Nation Watching

Many of Grenfell Tower’s former residents say that the local council neglected them before the fire, and that the disaster might have been prevented if officials had heeded their concerns.

A public inquiry has begun, and Scotland Yard is investigating: Police officials have said that they would consider individual as well as corporate manslaughter charges.

“Today we ask why warnings were not heeded, why a community was left feeling neglected, uncared for, not listened to,” Graham Tomlin, the bishop of Kensington, said during the service.

“Today we hold out hope that the public inquiry will get to the truth of all that led up to the fire at Grenfell Tower, and we trust that the truth will bring justice.”
