CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION KICKS OFF AT HORNTON ST
The Met have served notice on RBKC that a criminal investigation has started and ordered the preservation of all documentation that pertains to Grenfell Tower. A bit late IMO as I suspect the reason that Kensington Town Hall (KTH) was not only closed at the weekend, but off limits to ALL staff, was so that the shredders could go into overdrive without pesky witnesses. I've worked at KC (based at KTH) for 25+ years and have NEVER known this to happen.
Re the Met's investigation, KC have retained expert advisors (I understand that a dozen or so QCs were to have attended tomorrow) to prepare for the investigation and Public Enquiry. Given that the Town Hall is to shut "for safety reasons" tomorrow (Wednesday), I guess the silks will have wasted their journey.
