Report proposes memorial to tragedy should emphasise ‘height and visibility’ but says tower remains cannot stand forever

The Grenfell Tower disaster should be remembered with a permanent memorial reaching high into the sky but the building itself “cannot remain forever in its current form”, the commission established to determine the future of the site has concluded.

A memorial that lasts generations should consider incorporating the names of some or all of the 72 people who died in the June 2017 fire and “make sure the world can never forget”, states a report by the Grenfell Tower Memorial Commission circulated to the bereaved, survivors and local people and seen by the Guardian.
