The ruin of Grenfell Tower.

Good decision.

The criminal investigation into the Grenfell Tower fire may consider individual as well as corporate manslaughter charges, Scotland Yard has said.

At a briefing on the progress of the Metropolitan police investigation of the disaster, officers said they were examining eight cases of alleged fraud involving people who falsely claimed money after the fire. Four possible thefts from flats on the lower levels of the tower while it was under 24-hour security were also under investigation, they added.

Police said they believed the death toll from the 14 June blaze may fall slightly from the current estimate of about 80.
