HuffPost UK: Further reading

The Grenfell inquiry is taking a break for the summer recess, after providing weeks of yet more incredible revelations.

The first part of the inquiry last year examined the harrowing details of the night itself. Since reconvening in January, it has heard often shocking details about the corporate decisions that lead to the blaze being so deadly.

This HuffPost article reports on ignored emails, architects who weren't aware of rules and a general trend of passing the buck - all described as major themes as the refurbishment of the tower from 2016 to 2016 was dissected.

It was of course this refurbishment that resulted in the tower being clad in a combustible material that burned quickly and fiercely on the night of the disaster.

This revealing article looks at seven key revelations that the second part of the inquiry has brought to light so far.
