Following the tragic incident in my ward on Saturday, the Fire Brigade has issued a statement saying that fire investigators believe that a chest freezer may have caused the fire.
Local people are still in shock over what has happened. Scenes at the Crest Academy were very emotional when I went over to meet with staff and the Principal to assist on matters from the Council’s side of things.
The London Fire Brigade has issued advice about fire safety on their website here: LINK
Thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.
