Firefighters pay tribute to Grenfell Tower blaze victims as public inquiry begins

FIREFIGHTERS paid tribute today to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire ahead of the start of the public inquiry into the atrocity tomorrow.

The hearing will begin with two weeks of tributes from family and friends remembering the victims of the June 14 2017 fire in which 72 people perished.

Fire Brigades Union (FBU) general secretary Matt Wrack said: “The Grenfell Tower fire was a devastating and heartbreaking tragedy. Seventy-two people died and the lives of those who survived were forever changed.

“On behalf of firefighters everywhere, we pay our respects to those who died, were injured or lost loved ones.

“A whole community has been devastated. The thoughts of all firefighters will be with them as tributes begin at the public inquiry.

“The FBU is working with local people to help the community to recover. We will continue to do everything in our power to help them rebuild their lives.”

Lead counsel to the inquiry Richard Millett said that starting the hearings with tributes will ensure that participants “never lose sight of who our work is for and why we are doing it.”
