    So what was your response? Could thames water have upped the pressure or whatever to make it easier for the firemen? From this layman's eye by the time the tenders had got there the fire was so ferocious it wouldn't have made much difference.
    My understanding is that it's very difficult for water companies to rapidly adjust water pressure in particular locales at short notice, but my expertise aren't in engineered water systems and I didn't want my name being quoted against something that might be wrong, so I ended up directing him toward a friend of mine who works in that area.

    A lot of water companies across the UK have been accused of maintaining lower pressures to ensure they're leak compliant, something this awful event has brought into the discussion. If that's the case here, then Thames Water may have a case to answer, but it wouldn't be exclusively in relation to Grenfell.
    Okay, technically I'm a serial killer...
