Advice on air quality:

Updated: 20th July 2017

Every effort is being taken to ensure that the Grenfell Tower site is handled in a dignified and respectful way for all those who have been directly impacted as well as the local community.

The current air quality monitoring has not identified elevated levels of ash or dust in the surrounding area, and no asbestos, so the risk to people's health is considered to be low. We are also monitoring for chemicals considered to be the most hazardous to health. The information we have had from the teams working within the Tower is that the majority of the building is still damp, which reduces the chances of any material being blown into nearby areas. If this situation alters as a result of changes to the weather, for example, then we will alert the local community.

It is important to note that generally we can't inhale visible dust and, although a nuisance, it does not represent a health hazard.

Each week we are publishing an air quality report with the data we have collected from around the site. This is available online here:
