Newham, Barking & Dagenham LibDems wish to express our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family and friends of those who died or were effected by the terrible fire at the Grenfell Tower in Kensington on Monday night. We also wish to thank the emergency services and the thousands of volunteers who worked with courage and dedication due this terrible disaster.
We also need to know if this can happen here in Newham. Many residents are worried about whether their homes are safe and we believe that Newham Council's statement is not detailed enough to give confidence that this is the case.
We have written an open letter to the Mayor of Newham asking for more details on the Housing situation in Newham and asked for an open and honest response to our genuine fears.
