Wennington fire: Council opens rest centre for residents in Wennington

Published: Tuesday, 19 July 2022

The Leader of Havering Council, Councillor Ray Morgon, said:

“As we continue to respond to the tragic fires that have ripped through Wennington today (19 July 2022) – we are doing all we can to help those affected. 

“We have now opened a rest centre to help any residents who have been evacuated and are unable to go to family or friends’ homes.

“We know that very sadly at least eight properties have been totally destroyed.

"After spending the afternoon there to help out and support those affected I have to say how devastated I am for all those people and we will do all we can to help them rebuild their lives. 

“I want to thank the brave firefighters who remain on the scene as well as those council officers who will work through the night and in the days ahead to support. 

“In the meantime we need local people to help us in this vital work by being sensible and not doing anything to add extra pressure on our already stretched Ambulance, Fire and Police services.

"Please also continue to avoid the area if at all possible.”
