Labour calls on Tories to repay donations linked to Grenfell cladding

Labour has called on the Conservatives to repay donations linked to Grenfell Tower’s cladding, as bereaved families accused Lewis Hamilton’s Formula One team of taking “blood money” sponsorship from a firm that made combustible insulation used on the building. The backlash against the sponsorship of Hamilton’s racing car by Kingspan grew on Friday as more bereaved families joined calls for it to be scrapped. She welcomed Gove’s comment that “the Grenfell community deserves better” than the sponsorship deal, but said his party should return donations from property developers that had used similar cladding. The Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team has stressed that Hamilton is not involved in the sponsorship deals. The deal was announced with pictures of Gene Murtagh, Kingspan’s chief executive, sitting on one of the Mercedes F1 cars with Wolff.
