Shocking fire in Brent
The appalling fire and loss of life in Sonia Gardens has shocked everyone. Our thoughts must be with the two badly hurt survivors and that they overcome their injuries and their loss. I read that the house was rented to the family. I often visit residents in privately rented properties. There are a great number in Willesden and some are generally in poor condition and suffer overcrowding. Private landlords clearly have a duty of care but I suspect a number do the bare minimum to ensure their tenants' safety. I am now committed to add checking fire alarms and safety features when making visits.
