Jeremy Corbyn today claimed empty homes owned by the wealthy should be occupied if needed to provide homes for victims of the Grenfell fire.

The Labour leader dramatically escalated his demand for greater Government action as he jibed as Theresa May some people care to a ‘deeper extent’ about the tragedy.

Mr Corbyn risked outrage on Friday when he first claimed empty properties should be ‘seized’ if needed to ensure Grenfell survivors have secure accommodation.

Senior Tory MPs slammed the Labour leader for trying to trying to score ‘political points’ by ‘exploiting’ the disaster.

Mr Corbyn is facing claims his interventions are encouraging his hard left supporters to fuel the anger over the tragedy.

The Government’s bungled handling of the disaster last night forced Mrs May to apologise over aid on the ground and to call in the Red Cross to help.
