Grenfell Tower

Many of the posts on this blog are related to the history of North Kensington, and many of our readers live in the area. As a mark of respect for all those affected by the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower on Wednesday morning there will be no post this week.

Our thoughts and sympathies go out to residents, their families, friends and neighbours.

    RIP those poor souls and our prayers are with all those affected.

    It would be nice to see some photos from a happier period of Grenfell Tower or Lancaster West’s history or construction, if available and the team at Local Studies thought this was appropriate in the future.

    I would like to know, Just how a fridge could catch fire? why the chap did not try to put it out, Rather than walk away. How come its Mrs Mays fault? Also why is he the man who started the fire not in the limelight?

    There are many lessons to be learnt from this tragedy. Sadly, history often repeats itself. And, history is not a favoured subject during this age of selfishness, overconfidence, arrogance, and compacency.

    A deeply shocking incident. come it is legal? My own house has celotex type polystyrene insulation put in during the week before the Grenfell tragedy, and every skip around here has branded celotex within it…so the whole of England is covered in this deadly stuff?? All those loft extensions? Even Victorian/Georgian houses aren’t safe from this stuff. It needs banning for the safety of all.

    Peter Hewlett, Fridges apparently do catch fire..but the fire should have been containable. So reminiscent of the Joelma Tower Tragedy in Sao Paulo , where faulty air conditioning unit caught fire.
    The death toll there was terrible too.
