Abbey Wood woman, 39, charged with £62,000 Grenfell tower fraud

An Abbey Wood woman has been charged with fraud relating to the Grenfell Tower fire after she obtained money “while being neither a survivor or bereaved family member”.

Jenny McDonagh, 39, worked for Kensington and Chelsea Council in their finance department. She spent £60,000 meant for survivors using pre-paid credit cards, including holidays abroad.

Two of her holidays were to Dubai and Los Angeles.

She was charged with four counts of fraud including money laundering and appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

A number of people have been charged with fraud offences relating to the fire which killed 72 people in 2017.
