Residents of London's Grenfell Tower high-rise were wrongly told to stay in their apartments as fire raged through the building, aided by flammable external cladding that didn't meet safety standards, an expert report said Monday.Lane's report was published by an inquiry investigating causes of the fire, which killed 72 people.The judge-led inquiry, which is expected to last about 18 months, aims to find the causes of Britain's deadliest fire in decades and to prevent future tragedies.Monday's hearing follows almost two weeks of personal tributes from friends and family aiming to ensure that the victims -- who ranged from an 84-year-old woman to a stillborn premature baby -- aren't forgotten during many weeks of detailed evidence on building regulations, fire-safety procedures and government policies.
