The question has been raised by many on social media whether – in view of the removal or disconnection of web pages about Grenfell Tower by companies involved in the recent refurbishment of the ill-fated tower block – police have seized records held by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) and the Tenant Management Organisation (TMO):
The SKWAWKBOX has spoken with the Metropolitan Police Service about the issue and received an intriguing response.
A press spokesman reconfirmed that a criminal investigation is underway and told this blog:
At this stage in the investigation, while it would certainly be the appropriate step to obtain documents and electronic records from the council and the TMO, we’re not able to confirm.
While this sounds as near to a ‘yes’ as you could have without the word ‘yes’ being used, the matter is officially unconfirmed – but it seems highly likely that it’s imminent, already underway or even already completed.
Further news will follow when available.
