Theresa May admits she will 'always regret' her response to Grenfell Tower fire in brutally honest confession.

Theresa May admitted today she will "always regret" her response to the Grenfell Tower fire in a brutally honest confession.
The Prime Minister admitted "it seemed I didn't care" when she failed to meet survivors of the disaster that killed 72.
It will be a year this Thursday since fire ripped through the 24-storey block in West London, triggering fury at years of neglect by the establishment.
Mrs May faced protests and shouts of "coward" in the days after the tragedy by meeting emergency services instead of families.
In her frankest assessment to date, the Prime Minister today said that was the wrong approach and she should have showed she cared.She wrote in the Evening Standard: "It has long been clear that the initial response was not good enough.
"I include myself in that.
"The day after the disaster I made the first of a number of trips to the site, thanking the firefighters for their work and holding a short meeting with the team in charge of the response."What I did not do on that first visit was meet the residents and survivors who had escaped the blaze."But the residents of Grenfell Tower needed to know that those in power recognised and understood their despair.
"And I will always regret that by not meeting them that day, it seemed as though I didn’t care. That was never the case."
The Prime Minister has since met victims' groups several times.
