Grenfell Tower fire survivors were forced to knock on the doors of the Kensington and Chelsea Council chamber to be allowed into the first full council meeting since the fire.
Survivors of the June 14 fire had to repeatedly knock on the door, guarded by several private security personnel, to pleas of "let them in" from members of the public and some councillors inside the chamber.
The meeting saw the formal election of Elizabeth Campbell as leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council following the resignation of Nicholas Paget-Brown, under criticism of the council's handling of the fire.
Despite having just been elected, she was heckled with calls of "resign" at the meeting in Kensington Town Hall from a packed public gallery of at least 150 residents.
A petition has been signed by over 1,500 residents demanding resignations from the entire elected council leadership, passing the threshold for debate by councillors.
Survivors had been told there was not enough space in the chamber to let them all in but were eventually permitted entry, with Labour councillor Beinazir Lasharie pleading with security guards for them to be let in.
The survivors who entered the chamber were applauded by members of the public as they came in, with some declaring that they may wish to speak at the meeting.
Survivors were then allowed to address the meeting.
Outside the town hall Justice for Grenfell demonstrators gathered with placards demanding a snap election.
The meeting is the first since former leader Nicholas Paget-Brown attempted to bar media and the public from a council meeting days after the fire which claimed "at least" 80 lives.
