Grenfell Tower families to receive minimum of £5,500 from No 10

Every family whose home was destroyed in the Grenfell Tower fire will receive a down-payment of at least £5,500 on Monday.
The Prime Minister has confirmed that each affected household is going to receive £500 in cash, as well as £5,000 delivered through the Department of Work and Pensions.

Downing Street says affected families can access the cash payment immediately from the council "as and when" they need it.

Number 10 has stressed that households who do not have a bank account will be given support to ensure they can access the rest of the down-payment.
