Closing submissions on Phase 1 of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry are underway. Danny Friedman QC and Stephanie Barwise QC (with Liz Davies, Raj Desai and Jesse Nichols) instructed by Bindmans, Bhatt Murphy, Hickman Rose and Hodge Jones Allen opened the submissions on behalf of the bereaved, survivors and residents. They addressed the patent non-compliance of the building refurbishment; significant failings in London Fire Brigade’s preparedness for a cladding fire, its systems and its response on the night; and failures in the joint emergency response of other responders.
