Prime Minister Theresa May announced this evening that the victims will be involved in the process.

Survivors and the families of those who died in the devastating blaze will also be given state funding for legal representation at the probe.

It follows warnings the inquiry may take years to conclude and may never establish the truth of what happened.

Mrs May announced on Thursday she was ordering a judge-led inquiry to ensure the events at the 24-storey block were ‘properly investigated’.

No 10 said the Prime Minister told survivors they will be consulted on the terms of reference for the inquiry, which will allow them to shape the way it is run so they can get the answers they are seeking.

 

So far, 30 people have been confirmed dead as a result of the west London blaze, which destroyed hundreds of homes and belongings.

Police have also confirmed that they fear they may not be able to identify everybody killed in the blaze.
