4 out of 5 stars in The Telegraph: “So much pain, so much grief, so much trauma. Grenfell: The First 24 Hours was a hard-to-watch film, which, even-handed as it was, only served to reinforce the sense of outrage that such a tragedy could still happen in Britain in this day and age.”
“Justice has yet to be done after the tragedy; this tremendous film should provide fresh impetus.” – The Times.
