Ongoing Grenfell inquiry

In January 2021, the Grenfell inquiry was suspended because of rising Covid-19 infections in London. It had been operating in person, but with minimal attendance. The three-strong inquiry panel, witnesses and lawyers for the inquiry were the only people at the premises, along with a support team.

The planned restart this month, with remote hearings using computer links, was originally opposed by the bereaved and survivors panel, because of concern that witnesses giving evidence via computer link could be coached in their answers. However, the panel decided “it is better to have remote hearings than no hearings at all while the current restrictions are in place”. The inquiry is due to start again this month.
