Basildon Council has offered to find temporary accommodation in the town for families who lost their homes in the recent Grenfell Tower fire.
The devastating blaze in west London killed at least 79 people, while many of the survivors were made homeless.
Following the tragedy, Basildon Council’s Chairman of Policy and Resources Committee Cllr Gavin Callaghan decided to write to the leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council to let them know that help is available if required.
