Private firms which refurbished Grenfell Tower have refused to admit any responsibility for the catastrophic fire that killed 72 people, despite experts saying the work failed to meet building regulations.
The second phase of the inquiry into the blaze began on Monday with the inquiry’s chief lawyer accusing companies of passing the blame on to each other rather than accept any responsibility.
The second phase will examine how the 24-storey residential block came to be wrapped in flammable cladding, which phase one of the inquiry found was the “principal” reason for the rapid spread of the flames.
