Sadiq Khan – 2021 Comments on Anniversary of Grenfell Tower Fire Tragedy

The comments made by Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, on 14 June 2021.

London will never forget the tragic events of 14 June 2017, when 72 people lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower fire. Four years on from this national tragedy, my thoughts remain with bereaved families, survivors and residents as they remember their loved ones.

There are many whose lives will never be the same after Grenfell. We owe it to the people who died, to the survivors and the entire community to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.

While dealing with their own grief and recovery, the Grenfell community have been unwavering in their dignity and strength, continuing to campaign and fight for justice and public safety. As Mayor of this city, I stand with them and I will continue to be relentless in holding those responsible to account, doing everything in my power to ensure all Londoners feel safe in their homes.
