Most survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire are still living in emergency accommodation, the Grenfell Response Team has said.

Residents from 13 homes have been rehoused so far, with 48 offers of temporary or permanent accommodation being accepted.

The response team said it did not want to pressure people who were “severely traumatised” into making a decision.

At least 80 people are believed to have died in the blaze on 14 June.

Opposition parties have criticised the revelation that over 1,600 homes remained empty in Kensington and Chelsea.

The fire in the 24-storey block started in a Hotpoint fridge freezer and destroyed 151 homes both in the tower and surrounding areas.

Justice 4 Grenfell said the numbers were “testament to the continuing misery and suffering people are enduring”.
