Grenfell: Unimaginable tragedy 'at the forefront of our minds', says PM

Theresa May has said the Grenfell Tower fire was an unimaginable tragedy that remains "at the forefront of our minds", ahead of the one-year anniversary of the fire on Thursday.

The Prime Minister, speaking during PMQs, said she attended a moving vigil on Monday in memory of those who lost their lives.

Let me again reassure the House that we are doing everything that we can to see that the survivors of Grenfell get the homes and support that they need and the truth and justice that they deserve.

– THERESA MAY, PRIME MINISTER

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the "sad truth and reality" is that many Grenfell survivors are still waiting for a permanent home one year on from the disaster.

Theresa May said 203 households needed a new home, and that 183 have accepted an offer of permanent accommodation.

Sadly the reality is that some of them have still not got a permanent home to move into - it's very important for the mental wellbeing of everybody they have somewhere they can call home and they know it is their home.
