Real cause of Grenfell Tower fire disaster revealed

Grenfell Tower fire

Police in London said on Friday that the fire that engulfed the Grenfell Tower block started in a Hotpoint “WHR.N.”

The fire incident killed at least 79 people.

Police Detective, Superintendent Fiona McCormack said the Hotpoint model, “FF175BP”, was not
subject to recall and that the manufacturer was doing further tests.

He told DailyMail UK, “We now have expert evidence that the fire was not started deliberately.”

Police said both the insulation and tiles used in cladding at the 24-storey Grenfell Tower block failed all post-fire safety tests.

He added, “Preliminary tests show the insulation samples collected from Grenfell tower combusted soon after the test started.

“Given the deaths of so many people we are considering manslaughter as well as criminal offences and breaches of legislation and regulations.”

When speaking about the 79 people presumed dead or missing, McCormack said, “I fear that there are more.”
