George Galloway has called for charges to be brought in what he claimed was "obvious criminal negligence" in the Grenfell Tower tragedy. 

Seventy-nine people have now been confirmed as either dead or missing and presumed dead in the wake of the fire, which ripped through the tower last week.

Our host was speaking to a caller named Ahmed on his show when he urged the legal system to take action. 

He said: “That’s why I said we don’t need a public inquiry, we need charges.

"We need the police to charge people and the authorities to prosecute them. It’s quite obvious that criminal negligence is at play here.

"Someone, maybe many, did not do their duty to the public, to their own tenants.

"This goes right to the top of Kensington and Chelsea and, in the bigger picture, goes right to the top in Downing Street."
