An expert has claimed insulation boards fitted to the outside of the building during a previous makeover produce a deadly gas when they burn.
The horrific revelation comes as the chief executive of Kensington and Chelsea council resigned amid criticism over the borough’s response to the deadly blaze.
Nicholas Holgate stood down from the position, saying that staying would be a “distraction” to the recovery process.
In a statement, Mr Holgate said the council’s “highest priority” was to help families affected by the fire.
The Sun reports that at least three of those injured in the fire have been treated with an antidote for hydrogen cyanide poisoning in hospital.
However, it’s feared the number of those affected could be higher.
