The Inquiry has instructed Prof. David Purser, Hartford Environmental Research, as an expert witness.

Prof. Purser will be producing a report on the production of toxic gases in fires similar to that at Grenfell Tower and the consequences of inhaling toxic gases in such circumstances. He will also consider the likely causes of incapacitation and death at Grenfell Tower and the toxicity when exposed to fire of certain materials which were present at the time of the fire.

Further information about the role of expert witnesses is available in the Inquiry's Guide 'What is an expert witness?'
