FIREFIGHTERS’ UNION PAYS TRIBUTE TO VICTIMS OF THE GRENFELL TOWER FIRE

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has paid tribute to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire on the day the public inquiry into the disaster opens.

 

Matt Wrack, FBU general secretary, said: “The Grenfell Tower fire was a devastating and heartbreaking tragedy. Seventy-two people died and the lives of those who survived were forever changed.

 

“On behalf of firefighters everywhere, we pay our respects to those who died, were injured or lost loved ones. A whole community has been devastated. The thoughts of all firefighters will be with them as tributes begin at the public inquiry.

 

“The FBU is working with local people to help the community to recover. We will continue to do everything in our power to help them rebuild their lives.

 

“Firefighters want to see truth and justice served for the community. We are working with representatives of the bereaved, survivors and residents to ensure that the Grenfell Tower Inquiry thoroughly addresses all of the issues that lay behind this appalling event.”
