Grenfell Tower fire: Block acquired for survivors

The survivors of London's devastating Grenfell Tower fire will be rehoused in a luxury development in the heart of Kensington, the government said on Wednesday.

The British Prime Minister, who also said the whole country had been heartbroken by the fire, confirmed a measure announced in the speech earlier by Queen Elizabeth.

Mr Javid said: "The residents of Grenfell Tower have been through some of the most harrowing and traumatic experiences imaginable and it is our duty to support them. And as Prime Minister, I've taken responsibility for doing what we can to put things rights".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has said that all Grenfell residents will be rehoused in the area unless they choose not to be.

London Fire Brigade and the city's other emergency personnel have been praised by politicians, locals and celebrities alike for their efforts during the Grenfell Tower fire, which left at least 79 people dead or missing, presumed dead.

The single's release marked a week since the blaze, which ripped through the apartment building in the early hours of June 14, when numerous residents were home asleep.

Social housing lawyer and partner at London firm Hodge Jones & Allen, Jayesh Kunwardia said the Royal Borough Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC), should revoke housing policy and commit to finding each of them suitable accommodation.

The upmarket Kensington Row complex includes a 24-hour concierge service, swimming pool, sauna and spa and a private cinema, the report said.

"We appreciate that we in Ribble Valley are part of a Borough Council a long way from London where many will want to remain but we feel that even if we can help those who have lost everything for a number of months, whilst new homes are built or found in London we show that we are a caring society which can act together to assist those whose lives have nearly been destroyed in this terrible fire".

Police Commander Stuart Cundy gave the new figure during a statement outside Scotland Yard on Monday.

"The objective of the Independent Public Advocate is to keep the bereaved and surviving victims of disasters informed of progress in any relevant investigation and make them fully aware how they can contribute to that investigation", said the government in a document detailing its legislative programme for the next two years. But as is often the case with unexpected tragedies like this one, local communities always seem to come together to spread love and find simple moments of joy, despite their grief.
