Fire investigation report into Grenfell Tower inferno may not be made public for YEARS : Daily Mail

  • MPs and protestors called for urgent answers as to why the fire spread so quickly
  • But London fire service say report will not be published until inquest is over
  • London Mayor Sadiq Khan says information should be released this summer

An investigative report into the disastrous Grenfell Tower fire may not be made public for years, it has been revealed.

MPs and protestors alike have called for immediate answers to questions such as why the fire, which led to the death of at least 30 people after the entire 27-storey tower block went up in flames on Wednesday, spread so quickly.

But the London fire service has said the report will not be made public until an inquest is complete – which could take years.

A spokesman for the fire service told the Guardian: ‘The report will not be in the public domain until that inquest is complete.

‘There is no timeframe for when the inquest will be, but certainly not in the short term.’

So far 30 people have been confirmed dead with reports of up to 70 more missing after the blaze ripped through the building in west London in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
