The Commissioner of London Fire Brigade, Dany Cotton, was forced to step-down today following a delegation to the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan by the bereaved Grenfell Tower families who went to City Hall to call for her to go.
Mayor Khan said he was ‘concerned that the brigade was at risk of losing the trust of Londoners’ . He said the decision to remove her from the £202,000-a-year post was “the right one”.
Ms Cotton will leave the London Fire Brigade on December 31, four months earlier than planned. She had announced in June that would retire aged 50 next April after 32 years’ service.
