Twelve people have been confirmed dead in the Grenfell Tower tragedy but the death toll is expected to rise. Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the events overnight. This has happened in the middle of London and, although it would be a disaster anywhere, that does seem to make it even more shocking.
It seems to suggest that if it could happen there then it could happen anywhere in the country. Some people will have a lot of explaining to do and let us hope that the findings do not take the ridiculous length of time to emerge that far too many inquires take.
