Fire officers had practised post-Grenfell rescue plan the day before huge Bolton apartment blaze

Two and a half years after the Grenfell Tower fire, there are still thousands of residents in blocks with deadly cladding. Shamefully the government is set to miss its own targets on cladding replacement. The Bolton fire must be a wake up call.

Jeremy Corbyn criticises 'inaction since Grenfell' as two injured in Bolton student accommodation fire


Most relevant

Thank you to the 40 fire crews who tackled the #BoltonFire  and the emergency services who treated people at the student accommodation. If reports are correct and flammable cladding contributed to the fire, it shows the government's shameful inaction since Grenfell.

Theresa May didn't publicly break down over Windrush, or Grenfell, or disabled people having their benefits cut, or children driven into poverty. In the end, she only publicly shed a tear over her own career.

The Tories say the victims of Grenfell didn’t have common sense. I’ll tell you what’s common sense: Don’t put flammable cladding on people’s homes. Don’t close fire stations and don't cut fire fighters. And don’t ignore residents when they tell you their home is a death trap.

What possesses someone to react to an entirely avoidable tragedy like Grenfell by saying the victims lacked common sense? People were terrified, many died trying to escape. Jacob Rees Mogg must apologise for these crass and insensitive comments immediately.
