The Justice4Grenfell campaign welcome Nicholas Paget-Brown finally doing the right thing and stepping down as Leader of the Council, something the survivors, residents and broader community have been calling for since the Grenfell Tower disaster. His Deputy, Rock Feilding-Mellen, has also stepped down according to media reports.
The Council’s total failure to respond adequately to the scale of the Grenfell Tower disaster has increased the negative impact on survivors, the terrible events they experienced were compounded by the continuing incompetence of the Council.
It remains to be seen whether other members of the Council will also step down.
The Press Association are reporting that the judge leading the public inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire has expressed doubt that the probe will be broad enough to satisfy all survivors.
Sir Martin Moore-Bick travelled to the site of the disaster in north Kensington on Thursday morning, later meeting those who escaped the inferno.

The Justice 4 Grenfell Campaign are extremely disappointed that – despite assurances from the Prime Minister – the survivors and residents have not been consulted before the appointment of Judge Sir Martin Moore-Bick to lead the Public Inquiry into the Grenfell disaster. This further compounds the survivors and residents sense of distrust in the official response to this disaster.

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.”

The Justice4Grenfell campaign welcomes the expediency with which the Metropolitan Police Service has released their initial findings of the cause of the Grenfell Tower fire. Their statement that criminal charges are being considered due to the outside cladding and insulation failing preliminary safety tests is also appreciated by the North Kensington community.
A campaign spokesperson said,
“This timely and open communication from the MPS to the community helps to mitigate the initial lack of confidence in the responsible authority. This level of transparency should set the bar for all future communications, continuing to ensure that the affected community is receiving adequate updates and information.”
