Firefighters have been gagged from talking about the horrors [Image: Daily Mirror].

We’ve all heard rumours that firefighters were having to step over and past dead bodies on the night of the Grenfell Tower fire – that the building had become, in effect, a charnel house.

And we all know that there has been a blackout on official news sources – we’ve seen nobody talking about what they have seen.

Official sources say they do not want to cause upset by releasing numbers until they are certain of them – and this seems reasonable.

But This Writer agrees with the firefighter who said it seemed unreasonable to suggest that accounts of what was experienced in the tower would obstruct investigations.

I believe the opposite, in fact.

It seems to me that gagging firefighters in this way provides an opportunity, for those with a motive, to hide the facts from the public.

If a firefighter is talking about what could be seen, then it would be impossible to provide numbers in any case.

But at least we would be better-prepared for whatever that number might, eventually, be.

And I, personally, am expecting it to be in multiples of 100, rather than a few more.

Heroic firefighters have been gagged from talking about the full horror at Grenfell Tower amid fears the true death toll will top 100.

The order from bosses has been revealed by several Fire Brigade sources who grimly insisted the official figure of 80 dead will soar.

They spoke as authorities were accused of masking the total of those who perished in the inferno.

One firefighter, who did not want to be named, told the Sunday Mirror: “We’ve been told by our management don’t speak, ideally. The coroner has said it could obstruct the investigation. I don’t know how it can – what’s happened has happened, but that’s what we’re being told.”

A union rep for the Fire Brigades Union said: “We know the death toll will be higher than the official figure – and we’re not talking about one or two higher. There’s a strong possibility we are talking about three figures.”
