world talking news – Council asks ‘who is in charge’ in the wake of Grenfell disaster
The chaos seen within the wake of Grenfell Tower was laid naked in a cache of council emails asking “who’s in cost” and labelling the fallout a “full media s***storm”.
The emails from Kensington and Chelsea council had been obtained by Channel four Information and present how the authority struggled to get a deal with on the disaster within the days following the fireplace.
One e mail highlighted how communication with survivors of the catastrophe was failing and was merely titled “Who’s in cost?”.
One other was despatched to the chief of the council on the time Nick Paget-Brown stating that “communication was very poor”.
The e-mail went on to say: “The expectation that they [“the community”] will know easy methods to discover assist compared to the kind of folks we are attempting to assist is the actual gulf. There are language issues, lack of training and understanding how something works.”
