On 25th September, Abdul Jabar Oryakhel fell to his death from his flat on the 16th floor. He was trying to escape the blaze at council block Twinnell House.
As the inquiry into the Grenfell Tower tragedy concluded that every one of the 72 deaths was avoidable, Bristol’s two fires in the space of a month have renewed fears among tenants of the city’s high rise blocks and forced the council into action.
From concerns about flammable cladding, to high rise residents feeling their safety concerns are being ignored, we will tell the stories of Bristolians most affected and hold the council to account on making its housing safe for all.
