London police say that they have “reasonable cause” to believe that the Grenfell Tower fire, which killed at least 80 residents, was the result of corporate manslaughter. 
The Metropolitan Police have officially informed the local council in Kensington and the tenant management association responsible for Grenfell that they are officially under suspicion. 
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea owns Grenfell Tower, a public housing block in an otherwise upscale neighbourhood.
Residents of Grenfell were informed of the decision to hold the council in suspicion by a letter from the police, which said that both the council and the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Association would have senior representatives interviewed by police regarding the fire. 
“There are reasonable grounds to suspect that each organisation may have committed the offence of corporate manslaughter.”
British law describes corporate manslaughter as when an organisation and its activities “causes a person’s death and amounts to a gross breach of a relevant duty of care owed by the organisation to the deceased”. 
If found guilty, they’ll be required to pay a hefty fine, but no-one will face jail time. 
The final death toll from the horror blaze is still unknown.
