‘We’re still having to fight’: Grenfell survivors’ battle for justice isn’t over five years on
The Independent says It began at 12.54am on 14 June 2017 and became the deadliest blaze in England for 120 years. Five years on, survivors tell Colin Drury they’re still struggling to right the wrongs of that fateful night
Shortly after 1am on 14 June, 2017, Richard Fletcher looked at his six-year-old daughter curled up in bed and debated allowing her to die peacefully as she slept.
The transport worker had been woken by an inferno engulfing Grenfell Tower, where the family lived on the 16th floor.
“Momentarily, I thought the best thing to do was to climb back into bed with our daughter, with my wife and me on either side, to cuddle up with her and let the smoke and fire take us,” he later told the official inquiry.
