Tower fire questions 'will be answered'


Questions about how Kensington's fatal tower block fire spread so quickly through the building "will be answered", the council leader has said, BBC reports.

Nicholas Paget-Brown said he would co-operate "in full" with the government's inquiry into the Grenfell Tower disaster and any other investigations, amid criticism of the council.

Some 58 people are dead or missing, presumed dead, police have said.

The recovery operation has resumed but could take weeks.

Meanwhile, the Home Office said it was making arrangements for the family of one of those who died in the fire to travel from Syria to Britain for his funeral.
