From the BBC’s news feed on their website…
Danny Donaldson is a community leader at the Latymer Christian Centre, which is one of several centres where displaced residents have been sent. Members of the public are bringing blankets and food and Danny’s team are trying to do what they can.
He told BBC Radio 5 live reporter Lesley Ashmall that emergency supplies were welcome, but he was getting increasingly concerned about where people would sleep tonight.
“People are bringing in water, food, blankets, but… at the end of the day, they can’t sleep in here”, he said
“We haven’t seen anyone from authority here, we need someone to come and explain what’s going to happen to people who are homeless.”
Danny said he was also extremely concerned about friends who lived in the tower block: “I know a lot of people who are missing, and we are phoning around, we can’t get anything. So we are just waiting."
The Local Borough/Council is The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, a Tory-led Council. They are generally elected in the southern wards of the borough in Chelsea, etc down near the river. This disaster has happened in the Notting Dale Ward of the borough, a ward that elects Labour councillors. It’s no wonder the Tory Council haven’t bothered turning up.
