A Grenfell campaigner will be coming to Dorset tonight to ‘warn of the dangers’ of the Bibby Stockholm barge.

The barge was recently described by a local as a “floating Grenfell” amid concerns over fire safety.

The firefighters’ union FBU claims the barge is a “potential death-trap”.

A total of 72 people died in the devastating Grenfell Tower fire in West London in 2017. Years later, survivors say that “nothing has changed” and many buildings are still at risk.

Moyra Samuels lived on the street next to Grenfell when the tragedy occurred and she has since become a campaigner and community worker who works alongside survivors of the fire.

She said “Grenfell Tower was a death-trap before the first firefighters set foot in the building - concerns raised by residents were ignored by the council.

“Six years on and no lessons appeared to have been learned because racist policies are more important than human lives.”

Stand Up To Racism Dorset has invited Moyra from the Justice for Grenfell campaign to speak.

She will be at a public meeting at Weymouth Centenary Club, Jubilee Close Weymouth at 7.30pm this evening (Thursday).
