The names were in a list that appears to have been accidentally sent out by London’s Kensington and Chelsea council, The Guardian revealed.

They include Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash and ex-New York mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Other vacant properties are owned by offshore firms linked to Christian Candy and Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Campaign group Who Owns England is calling for “increased transparency on ownership”.

The council has made 169 offers of accommodation to Grenfell survivors but so far only 12 households have been rehoused.
