Bonfire of the evidence as Grenfell Tower companies try to hide from the law?

It seems This Site commented too soon on the good conduct of the company that put flammable cladding on the walls of Grenfell Tower.

I wrote, on Sunday:

It seems 30,000 buildings in the UK have been fitted with the flammable cladding, according to Metro – but the company responsible, Harley Facades, says it is “not aware of any link between the fire and the exterior cladding”.

At least Harley Facades was still admitting it had been involved. It seems other firms have been stripping any such evidence from their websites.

Now it seems that, like the building and the lives of so many people who lived there, the firms responsible for the disaster are making the evidence go up in smoke.

Perhaps they believe Met Police Commander Stuart Cundy’s promise to follow the evidence wherever it takes him, with no fear of or favour to the powerful – and are therefore trying to ensure there is no evidence.

Whatever the reason, according to Labour MP and friend of one of the deceased, David Lammy:

Fair enough – deleting pages from your website isn’t deleting the whole paper trail of evidence, and may be considered good business sense (by some) if they are associated with a major disaster like Grenfell Tower.

But what else is disappearing, behind the scenes?

Mr Lammy made this very point on television. He was given a hard time by the interviewer but his points are becoming stronger by the day.

Perhaps Commander Cundy should be making some urgent visits to Harley and Studio E?

    Don’t they know Nothing is ever fully deleted!! Yes it is harder to get to the truth but not impossible!

    I hope that police officer makes good on his promise, though it might get dangerous, because big business will do Anything it takes to hide all they can!!!

    The potential claimants/investigators should also be checking and retaining all insurance policies and noting limits of liability of all those likely to be involved in any decision or production or manufacturing. Also watch out for sudden closure decisions where a Company shuts up shop and comes back under a brand new name having destroyed all their past records…… I regret when the clan are against the wall the police and civil investigators are far to slow to really grip the situation and in some troubled cases are part of the problem……

    Shouldn’t they be getting some urgent search warrants in respect of the tower landlord, the companies involved in the work done, the Council and the houses of the Councillors involved? Otherwise we are looking at yet another Establishment whitewash.
