LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Sunday the local authority in London where a fire killed at least 58 people last week did not have the resources to deal with an emergency of that scale.
He told ITV's Peston on Sunday that the community and emergency services were "incredible" in tackling the fire and its aftermath.
"What was less effective was the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, because they seemed to lack the resources to deal with a crisis of this magnitude in their borough and yet they are the country's wealthiest borough," the Labour leader said.
