    This morning's news reports are saying how some of the firefighters were climbing up the structure in the flames. Also, hopefully, the main towers will not collapse after the intense firestorm.

    So perhaps they did a fantastic job risking their lives. One firefighter badly injured.

    French police have released a photo of a 'person of interest'

    Last seen on the scaffolding a few minutes before the fire broke out

    I know it's difficult to know what the fire service were doing but I wouldn't want to live in one of those huge old apartments buildings in Paris. My sister is in the fire service here so I'll give her some stick like I did over grenfel, she gets right out of her pram if I criticise them.

    Quasimodo walks into a bar and orders a whisky. The bartender asks, ‘Bell’s alright?’ Quasimodo replies, ‘Mind your own f*ing business.’”

    Its all very sad but I find myself immediately wondering who has been so careless and whether the workmen realise the responsibility they have during these renovations. Im sorry but the cynic in me tends to look at an insurance job first

    That gut feeling that its being done on the cheap and they are all probably smoking away in the rafters. There have been other buildings that have gone up during restoration and I wonder whether they actually take it seriously or employ bodgit and scarper to save a few quid.

    Most likely an electrical fault started a dropcloth or similar rag type thing burning. It's usually electrical faults these days. I think an insurance scam is highly unlikely.
