Grenfell Tower

London Fire Commissioner, Dany Cotton said:

“One year ago today London changed forever. The tragic and unprecedented fire at Grenfell Tower will never be forgotten.

“At midday today, London Fire Brigade will fall silent in memory of all those who died or lost loved ones, their homes and possessions.

“As well as honouring the memory of the lives lost, we pay tribute to the resilience and spirit of the local community.

“The Grenfell community have asked that this year anniversary is used as a time to remember the victims and survivors. While I will never forget the extraordinary actions of firefighters, incident commanders and control officers that night, today must be about reflecting on the loss the Grenfell Community has suffered. I know I speak on behalf of everyone at London Fire Brigade when I say that you are never far from our minds.”
