Missing: The desperate hunt for lost relatives after London tower block fire

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 05:33

"His dream was to be able to go back home one day and rebuild Syria".

My experience of public-sector housing authorities, when I was a doctor with many patients who lived in public housing, was that they were stone deaf to all justified tenant complaints, unless someone like me made firm representations on the tenants' behalf.

Newly-appointed Indian-origin housing minister in the Department for Communities and Local Government, Alok Sharma, said, "Every single family will be rehoused in the local area".

"I have friends in the tower and they are not telling us anything", said Salwa Buamani, 25, who took part in the peaceful protest outside with her three-year-old niece.

The frightful fire, however, which is among the most terrifying anyone has ever witnessed, is being used to demand more public expenditure, raised and administered by the same kinds of people who brought such joy to the residents of Grenfell Tower.

At least 30 people have died but the death toll is expected to rise further with more than 70 people in total still believed to be unaccounted for.

Choucair has added her own posters, appealing for help in finding her mother, sister Nadia and her husband Bassem, and their three children; Mierna, 14, Fatima, 11, and 3-year-old Zayneb.

Siobhan Campbell worked in the social services office on the first floor of Grenfell Tower from 2005 to 2010, where she was involved in rehousing families.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has said that tower blocks in the city built during the 1960s and 1970s could be torn down following the Grenfell Tower fire.


They said: "We naturally welcome funds for those in need, though this does show once more the tendency to sideline residents' views".

Prime Minister Theresa May has been criticised for her muted response to the fire and had to be rushed away from a meeting with residents on Friday under heavy police guard as protesters shouted "Shame on you". "There is also insufficient support for victims on the ground".

West London film producer Nisha Parti, who has been helping victims, said the cash is being given to those checking into hotels in the wake of Wednesday's horrific blaze.

May has pledged to hold a public inquiry into the fire. When May visited the scene on Thursday, for instance, she apparently did not think it necessary to speak with survivors and angry local residents.

Asked if he would resign, Mr Paget-Brown said: "That's not a matter for now".

"Unfortunately this had to happen for things to happen".

In an interview, she was questioned over whether there was a need for the United Kingdom government to accept some responsibility for what had happened.

The bishop said he hoped it was the beginning of a process of listening between residents and authorities that would bring about lasting change.
