[100 word news] – ‘The people that stormed the council weren’t the local community’, says Kensington councillor

A Kensington councillor has said that in the aftermath of the Grenfell fire, ‘the people that stormed the council weren’t the local community’.

Conservative Catherine Faulks told BBC Radio 4:

‘I think actually the people that stormed the council weren’t the local community, I think they were people who like doing that sort of thing, and I think they did a disservice to the local community’.

‘I was very shaken. I had to call the police on 999 from inside the council for the SWAT team to take me out. But this isn’t about me’.

‘I completely understand the anger, the frustration of the local community. Of course we weren’t immediately quick off the ground, it’s an enormous tragedy, I don’t know if everyone realised how complex and how vast this fire was’.
