BBC News - London fire: Relative cites ‘lack of co-ordination’ in response

As anger mounts over the Grenfell Tower fire, many relatives are finding it hard to get the information they are desperate for. One man told the BBC of his frustration at the official response.
He is looking for information – any information – about five members of his family.

Nurul Islam’s uncle, aunt and three cousins were on the 17th floor when the tower block caught fire early on Wednesday morning.

He fears the worst.”

“. . . . He heard a rumour that a doctor who had been on the 17th floor had a list of the people found there – but has been “on a wild goose chase” trying to find the doctor. Even trying variations of the name he was given, he was not able to find anyone who had heard of her.
He spoke to a Red Cross representative, who he says told him: “If you come across a list, please let us know.”

‘No-one to talk to’

“There’s no one here to co-ordinate,” he said.

There’s no-one giving us information. There’s no-one to talk to.“”
