Will the Grenfell Tower Fire inquiry shake up building standards?

Relatives of 71 people killed in the raging inferno that destroyed the high rise tower block in London want the construction industry to design safer buildings.

Matthew Needham Laing, a lawyer and architect, tells the BBC's Russell Padmore how the Enquiry will scrutinise the role of regulators, provision of fire escapes and the type of cladding material installed on the building.
