London has been 'scarred' by Grenfell, says Patel

Home Secretary Priti Patel said London was “scarred” by Grenfell as she visited a fire station in the capital to coincide with the announcement of a Fire Reform White Paper. She said: “So I think, look, there have been so many recommendations post-Grenfell and Grenfell is just the most appalling tragedy. I think, you know, there’s no doubt London has been scarred by that. I think the London fire service has been as well, look at the inquiries that have ensued and been undertaken. Just look at the learnings that have come out of that and the sheer trauma, the sheer trauma for families as well. “We have to be very respectful and reflective of that, we really do. But what I would say is that it is vitally important that the service never stands still, and that the service learns constantly. “The Fire Reform White Paper certainly looks at all the learnings, all the recommendations and it’s how we can do better and be better to protect the public, not just in London, but across the country.”
