Grenfell Tower Inquiry Hearings Start May 21

The hearings will begin by commemorating the lives of the fire's victims, and then the first section of oral evidence hearings will start on June 4 and focus on the factual narrative of the fire itself -- the events of the night of June 14, 2017.

The Grenfell Tower Inquiry hearings will begin on May 21, as the investigation of the fire that killed 71 people in a London residential high-rise building enters a new phase. The hearings will begin by commemorating the lives of the fire's victims, and then the first section of oral evidence hearings will start on June 4 and focus on the factual narrative of the fire itself -- the events of the night of June 14, 2017.

This section's hearings will include:

  • existing fire safety and prevention measures at Grenfell Tower
  • where and how the fire started
  • the development of the fire and smoke
  • how the fire and smoke spread from its point of origin to other parts of the building
  • the chain of events before the decision was made that there was no further savable life in the building
  • the evacuation of residents

The second section of hearings will address the rest of the issues the Inquiry will consider, including building renovations and fire inspections that were conducted. There will be no hearings in the week of June 11-15 and none from Aug. 3 to Sept. 3.

The Inquiry currently has 547 core participants -- 519 individuals and 28 organizations, including the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority and the Fire Brigades Union.
