Grenfell fire: Accountancy firm KPMG quits inquiry amid conflict of interest furore

Accountancy firm KPMG has quit its advisor role on the Grenfell inquiry amid concerns over its appointment.

Campaigners had called for KPMG to be removed, saying it failed to disclose a conflict of interest.

KPMG is the auditor of three of the firms under scrutiny by the inquiry into the tower block blaze, in which 71 people died on 14 June last year.

The firm said it had "mutually agreed with the inquiry that we will step down from our role with immediate effect".
