Grenfell cladding fire risk was ‘covered up by ministers for years’ before blaze

The Daily Mirror says David Cameron should be quizzed over his involvement in “one of the major scandals of our time”, the inquiry into the Grenfell Tower disaster heard today.

In explosive opening statements from lawyers, the hearing was told how successive governments had covered up the extent of the cladding crisis for more than 30 years.

Michael Mansfield QC, for the bereaved and survivors, said former PM Cameron made “ridiculing” comments about health and safety in the years before the 2017 fire, which killed 72 people.

In 2010, Cameron said he wanted to “scrap health and safety rules that put people off”, Mr Mansfield said.
