Last night's Grenfell Tower meeting was "completely shambolic" because those in charge couldn't run it and the public have no confidence in them, says a Labour councillor.

A meeting was held for the residents of Grenfell Tower, but many called for the police to make arrests and for others to resign. Among those on the panel were new council leader Elizabeth Campbell and DCI Matt Bonner, who is heading up the police investigation.

Pat Mason, a Labour councillor on Kensington and Chelsea Council, told Sam Delaney: "It was meant to update people on what was happening but it was a completely shambolic meeting because [officials] just couldn’t run a meeting.

"People are just so angry, they wanted straight answers which they didn’t believe they were getting. There’s too many people with too many stories about promises broken.

"The meeting eventually descended into a shambles because people decided they didn’t have any confidence in those people [in charge].

"Even the things [authorities] are doing which you would say are good, they seem unable to communicate it to the audience."
