Grenfell Tower: 'We are not the criminals here'

Grenfell Tower: 'We are not the criminals here'

Three weeks after the prime minister issued a statement saying "everybody affected" would be "found a home nearby" only a handful of residents have accepted the offers of new accommodation. Today is Theresa May's deadline.

Sid Alt-Atmani is a survivor of the Grenfell Tower fire and Eleanor Kelly is chief executive of Southwark Council and spokesperson for the Grenfell Fire Response.

Mr Alt-Atmani does not believe his needs have been properly considered by the Kensington and Chelsea Council adding "we are not the criminals here, the crime happened in that building".
