Lakanal House inquest: Victim told stay in burning flat

  • 2-13-2013

A 31-year-old woman was told to stay inside her flat despite smoke coming through her floorboards, an inquest was told.

Catherine Hickman was one of six people killed in a tower block fire in Camberwell, south-east London, in 2009.

Jurors at Lambeth Town Hall were told that a 999 operator told the fashion designer to stay in the flat as they did not know "what was outside that door".
