Learning from the Grenfell Tower Tragedy

Frank Bertie

The tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire highlighted the deep issues faced by social housing in the UK and sparked an outcry of discussion. In particular, the causes of the fire have spurred intense debate, as it was revealed by police that the fire started in a fridge freezer due to an electrical fault.
