In the early hours of June 14th 2017 more than 80 people died in a council owned tower block in Kensington, the wealthiest area of one of the richest cities in the world. The deaths and injuries to the people inside it were a direct result of negligence, indifference, incompetence, cost-cutting, and corruption. In a devastating and upsetting report Architects for Social Housing describe the background to the series of events that led to this terrible fire. It is a shocking indictment of national and local government, the building industry in the UK, and housing policy in London.
