Tussell's founder Gus Tugendhat told LocalGov: 'It is heartening to see that Grenfell has prompted long overdue investment in fire safety across the public sector, especially in local government.

'Grenfell was a terrible tragedy but there may be at least one ray of light in that it has prompted local government and the public sector as a whole to look at fire safety that bit more carefully.”
