URGENT PRESS RELEASE 23rd JUNE

We have just been informed that survivors from the Grenfell Fire who had been housed in a hotel in the local area have been split up and sent to two different hotels outside the borough.

“The government has said they are committed to looking after residents but today I witnessed very upset survivors of the Grenfell fire again being separated and moved to new hotels out of the borough. This is a disgrace and the government must fulfil its obligations to treat these traumatised people with both respect and care.”

Pilgrim Tucker, Community Organiser working with Grenfell survivors.
