Perhaps there is something wrong with me? Alzheimer’s maybe?
Scotland Yard has estimated that 350 people were resident in Grenfell Tower on the night of the fire which tore through the block of flats in west London last month.
I was sure I had read somewhere Grenfell Towers housed about 600 people.
That was right at the beginning of the tragedy.
About 600 people.
An exact figure is unknown but it is a 24-storey tower block and there are thought to be around 24 people per floor.
This would leave the total at around 600 (576) although authorities have no idea how many people were in their homes during the fire.
Kensington and Chelsea Council leader Nick Paget-Brown suggested, ‘several hundred would have been in there. It’s a question of establishing how many people were in there at the time of the fire.’
So, ho hum….
I think the authorities might not actually have a clue.
