Hundreds of people marched past the UK Home Office headquarters in London on Saturday, calling for government action on fire safety. The demonstrators were remembering the 72 victims of the Grenfell Tower blaze, a day after its second anniversary. The Grenfell tragedy was caused by insulation and cladding catching fire and racing up the building.

"Justice looks like first of all like having new social housing that actually addresses the problem of it. Not affordable housing but social housing. Owners of these private towers well actually be fined, be demanded that they take down the cladding, not just specifically for Grenfell but changing the whole attitude towards social housing", said Orlando, one of protesters at the rally.

Protesters say that the government handling of the disaster was "inadequate." They are calling for removal of the unsafe cladding from all buildings.
