On 14 June 2017 the 220-foot (67m) 24-storey Grenfell Tower block of public housing in North Kensington caught fire and quickly became an uncontrollable blaze.

Organisations such as the Grenfell Action Group had warned of the obvious and potentially catastrophic risks including disastrous fire created by the council's "redevelopment" project. 

Residents complained about the general neglect of the UK government, the dilapidation and shoddiness of the contractors' recent works underlying a complete and catastrophic failure to improve basic standards in Central London.

This marks one of the most severe and most lethal disasters in London in living memory, with the number of dead estimated at of over double that of the King's Cross Fire of 1987.

In the wake of the event, the RBKC organised response was so absent and so poor that the councillors were formally relieved of duty, with multiple resignations of key councillors, and a task force termed "gold command" of exterior London boroughs reporting to the prime minister's office, assuming charge of official relief operations and emergency services, including police investigation.
