Camden Council turned green for Grenfell on Sunday night to mark the 72 lives lost in the tower block fire on its third anniversary.
Camden lit up its Pancras Square building on June 14 in memory of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower blaze – worsened by the combustible cladding fitted – and the continued fight for justice of survivors and bereaved friends and families.
Cllr Meric Apak, cabinet member for housing, said: “Yesterday our Pancras Square building in Kings Cross turned green for Grenfell in tribute to the 72 people who tragically lost their lives three years ago.
“Our thoughts are with the survivors, those who lost loved ones and all who were affected by this disaster, you will never be forgotten.”
