Inquests, public inquiries and criminal prosecutions
We have contact with lawyers that specialise in acting in inquests and major public inquiries of this sort. We suggest that, from our experience, you should not speak to the Local Authority or the Police without obtaining legal representation.
Inquest have issued a statement on Grenfell Tower Fire, outlining the reasons they believe a public inquiry would be more beneficial for bereaved families, survivors and the public at large. Link here.
