Conservatives hang on to Grenfell borough in local election - Daily Mail

Labour has failed to seize control of the council at the centre of the Grenfell Tower tragedy - despite fury at the borough's response to the tragedy. Jeremy Corbyn's party had hoped to snatch the flagship Tory borough of Kensington and Chelsea in the wake of the fire (pictured, centre, inset). The Tory-run local authority had face widespread criticism over its failure to prevent the tragedy, which killed 71 people, injured many more and left dozens homeless. But those hopes were dashed last night when the Conservatives comfortably held on to their majority. Emma Dent-Coad, Labour MP for Kensington, slumped into her seat and put her head in her hands (pictured, left) and then on the table (pictured, right) in despair as the results came in.
