Rising among the stylish town houses that define west London prosperity, the charred remains of Grenfell Tower on the edges of Notting Hill now serve as an ominous reminder of the British capital's vast disparities. Debris Thursday continued to fall from the 24-floor tower's dark skeleton as the acrid smell of burned plastic wafted in the wind after a fire in which at least 17 people lost their lives.Grenfell Tower is located in Kensington and Chelsea, statistically the richest neighborhood in the country, but with the most pronounced wealth disparities.The former leader lives a few minutes' walk away in Notting Hill, famed for its charming houses with multicolored facades, its annual carnival and a Hollywood film featuring Hugh Grant.But the image projected to the world is a long way from the reality of life around Grenfell Tower and the three other 20-plus-floor blocks nearby.
