Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is shown donations of aid, made by members of the local community, by Executive Director of Kensington and Chelsea Council, Sue Harris during a visit to the Westway Sports Centre which is providing temporary shelter for those who have been made homeless in the Grenfell Tower disaster, in west London on June 16, 2017. Protesters are anxious that councilors will dispatch homeless residents far from their communities.

The residential tower was built in 1974 and had been extensively refurbished in works that were completed previous year.
Planning documents detailing the recent refurbishment of the block did not refer to a type of fire barrier that safety experts said must be used when high-rise blocks are re-clad. The FR (version) is fire-resistant.
