Survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire have branded relief and rebuilding efforts as “terrible” nearly two months on from the disaster.
During another heated public meeting in the shadow of the charred building in north Kensington, people heckled and booed the council leader as their questions remain unanswered.
An angry audience accused the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (TMO) of “hiding”, at the fifth meeting held in Notting Hill Methodist Church on Wednesday (August 9).
Volunteer Ilham Zein, 28, who lost loved ones in the inferno, said young people were being turned away from the support centre with empty Oyster cards needed to travel and search for work.
She described the treatment as “disgraceful” and “discouraging”.
To much applause, another woman told the panel: "If you're coming to this meeting come prepared, with a strategy, don't fob us off. We're a community of integrity."
Council leader Elizabeth Campbell told community members: "I know this is not as quick as a lot of you had hoped. But we're trying to run a fair and transparent process."
Other concerns raised included several complaints of respiratory problems with claims GPs talked of a “Grenfell cough”.
Dr Deborah Turbitt at Public Health England said air pollution levels in the area remain safe and have been monitored every day since the fire on June 14.
The church hall repeatedly filled with exasperated sighs and shouts as people felt they were not being given straight answers.
One woman, who recently buried two relatives who died in the fire, called for a minute's silence for the dead at meetings, to cheers and applause.
She also called for prayers and choirs at the next Notting Hill Carnival.
Carnival chairman Pepe Francis said he wanted to bring the festival to "a standstill" on the Monday at 3pm in tribute to the dead.
Borough fire commander Spencer Sutcliffe said his crews had been "really deeply affected and saddened" by the disaster and offered to come to future events and programmes.
Executive site manager Michael Lockwood made assurances that the building was "externally and internally" safe and scaffolding and a protective wrap would be applied to the shell around mid-August.
Residents said seeing the burnt shell every day was causing much distress.
