1:52 am
you, some correspondent reports and we warn you, some viewers correspondent reports and we warn you, some viewers may find these images upsetting. myfamily... here are my family here. why, why? they die, i cannot sleep, always crying. the last thing i was hearing from my aunt was, "where are the firefighters?" and i rest it at that. "where are the firefighters?" i pray every single day, since the tower, to die sooner, because i have no meaning of my life. and they do not want to become a political football... no enquiry can comfort them. no blame brings them back. n0 warm words ease their harsh reality. grenfell was a national tragedy but their deeply personal one.
1:53 am
el—alami hamdan lost his daughter, her husband and their two children. leena, six months old, died in her mothers arms. why, why? this is our families. i not come in here just to pass the time. i had a family. fourfamily die! the report blames the cladding that surrounded the building for spreading these flames. it broke building regulations. the fire so fierce because grenfell‘s walls were covered in a material that was flammable. but the focus of this part of the enquiry is what happened on the night. despite the bravery of some firefighters, the fire brigade is heavily criticised for institutional and systemic failures. telling people to "stay put" in these flames cost lives.
1:54 am
paulos tekle was told to stay put in the building — his 5—year—old son isaac didn't make it out. on the night i was there, i was suffering, still i am suffering with this situation. but there was no excuse. we should have been rescued and helped by the firefighters. nazanin aghlani lost her mother and her aunt. they were responsible to do a job, they had training, they had legislations that told them what to do if compartmentation is breached. they didn't do it. they should be prosecuted, i'm not saying individual firemen, they did a hard job, bless them, they probably don't even get paid that well. but the seniors at the top, they get good money to do a very seriousjob. the most senior fire officer is criticised for her remarkable insensitivity for her words at the enquiry. i wouldn't change anything we did on the night, ithink... today she apologised to the families. the 72 lives lost were just the worst thing ever,
1:55 am
and london fire brigade are truly sorry we could not have saved everyone's life that night. but do you accept that more people died that night because you did not evacuate the building on time? i think it would be very difficult for us to make, draw that conclusion and i think even sir martin moore—bick says he has no expert evidence to draw that conclusion. but he does draw that conclusion. so, will you resign and some of the families are asking? no, i won't, i will retire in six months‘ time. because my commitment is to making those changes and if i resign, i can't do that. grenfell survivor edward daffarn warned that there would be a serious fire in the building months before it happened. we first met him on the morning of the fire, in the clothes that he fled in. my life, my self, was saved by a brave firefighter, from the 16th floor, who came and rescued me when i was taking my last breaths, and sir martin moore—bick in his report points out that there are many, many instances of brave and courageous act by firefighters. my own personal view of dany cotton is that she needs to be
1:56 am
dismissed from her post. 0n the grenfell tragedy... in the commons, they stood silent for a minute, as survivors and bereaved looked on at the politicians they feel let them down. they asked for the truth, we promised them the truth, we owe them the truth. and, today, the whole country, the whole world, is finally hearing the truth about what happened at grenfell tower. the shameful fact is, mr speaker, that feet have been dragged, the exact same cladding is on similar high—rise blocks, sprinklers have not been fitted, thousands of people will go to bed tonight and tomorrow night not feeling safe in this country. this tower, a devastating testament to the companies which made the cladding, the authorities that allowed it to be put on, and the fire brigade who saved some, but failed others.
1:57 am
we have much more on the grenfell tower enquiry on our website. it is nearly two in the morning, that is it from me. let's catch up now with all of the weather news. hello. south—western reaches of the uk have had relentless rain in the last couple of days. cornwall, the channel islands and devon. the prospect for today looks drier although not necessarily brighter. the area of low pressure that has been passed to the south—west of the uk will pull away, taking the rain with it. more rain in the winds to come away for friday. today, however, we begin with rain across the south coast,
1:58 am
affecting parts of wales but come the afternoon are largely dry picture with a bit of drizzle around, the odd shower, lingering cloud but much drier. plenty of sunshine further north and east. still breezy especially for some of the western coasts. later in the day the cloud starts to build towards the west and skies become overcast. temperatures reaching 11 in belfast with brightness for plymouth up to 1a degrees. if you heading out in the evening for trick—or—treating, a fine story across central and eastern parts of the uk with the cloud thickening in the west to bring a patchy outbreak of rain at first and then some heavy rain by the time we get to midnight as the next area of low pressure starts to work in. it will also bring strengthening wind in this low will stay with us with us for a while, particularly on friday it will pull the air in from the south—west of the uk, from the atlantic and so yes the rain will come down but, actually, the temperature on the whole will be going up. heavy downpours of rain at time and coming in showery bands there will be brightness in between the rain and in that sunshine 16 or 17 degrees across eastern england.
1:59 am
persistent rain for the south coast later in the day. just nine or ten to the north across scotland. that area of low pressure is key to the weekend. it will stay with us, exactly how it develops is open to some questions still at the moment but if we do get this deep squeeze to the south of the uk it could be a very windy day across southern england and, particularly along the south coast. never mind where you are, a wet weekend basically in store.
