A Kilburn man has been convicted of fraud for pretending to be a victim of the Grenfell Tower fire in order to access £75,000 worth of assistance.
Daniel Steventon, 37, of Brondesbury Villas, pleaded guilty on Friday, 30 August at Isleworth Crown Court to a charge of fraud by false representation.
Steventon, who claimed he had been made homeless by the fire, also told authorities he had been living in a flat in the tower. He said he had been living with a genuine tenant in Grenfell - who died during the June 2017 blaze.
