On the 14th of June 2017 the 24 storey Grenfell Tower block of public housing flats in North Kensington, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, West London experienced a deadly fire that left at least 80 people dead and over 70 injured. Luckily there were more survivors than deaths and injuries; approximately 255 people survived. It is believed that the fire started on the 4th floor and spread widely, swallowing the whole building. A number of families and individuals have lost valuable property in the fire and have received compensation, but of course there can never be any compensation for lives lost. Joyce Msokeri of 46 years made claims that she was one of the victims of the fire in hopes to get compensation money. All claims have been investigated and hers was found to be false. She was never a resident at the Grenfell Tower nor was she visiting the building on 14th of June 2017. She is now facing serious legal action as she has been charged with fraud. Joyce Msokeri is due to appear in the Magistrate’s Court. Joyce Msokeri was arrested on the 25th of July and is now faced with 6 charges of fraud. Court dates still to be released.The Grenfell Tower Fire tragedy.
