Stephen Lawrence's mother has been accused of making a "disgraceful and unfair slur" after claiming that firefighters tackling the Grenfell Tower blaze were racist.

Is there some kind of standing operating procedure for authorities to tell people in harm's way to "stay put"? I am cherry picking here... but that's what I remember from reports relating to the South Korean ferry MV Sewol where many drowned after passengers were told to stay in their cabins rather than make their way to the lifeboats. I read that after the 1st plane hit the WTC that workers were told to return to their desks too. One thing for sure, if authorities tell me to "stay put"... I probably won't unless I assess that it IS going to be more dangerous for me to move.
