Nine people Arrests In Grenfell Tower Fire Fraud Raids

Nine people have been arrested for allegations of fraud in connection with the Grenfell Tower fire.

Eight men and one woman were detained by officers during raids around 07:00 BST in 11 directions, mainly in West London, the Metropolitan Police said.

In a briefing, the force said that two of the detainees are linked, but that all alleged crimes are separate.

The value of the alleged fraud ranges from £ 25,000 to £ 100,000.

"All of those arrests are related to what we believe are fraudulent housing claims and / or support of one kind or another, arising out of the false claims of people associated with Grenfell Tower," said Matt Bonner, Det Supt.
