We have been working throughout the night with colleagues from Kent Fire and Rescue, Maidstone Borough Council and Kent Police in connection with a fire at Walshaw House in Maidstone, where sadly, one of our residents lost her life.

The Police and Fire Service investigations are ongoing and until these have concluded the cause of this incident is not known.

Our team have been on site and have reached out to those households who may need alternative accommodation until such time that it is safe to return to their homes.

As the result of this traumatic incident within the community, we shall also be back on site today to talk to all residents to see if any further support is needed that might assist them through this difficult time.
