A very dubious affair: A family of 15 Afghans claim to have shared a three bedroom Grenfell flat – and one of them is a £6.5million fraudster

His picture appeared in newspapers around the world when he was photographed meeting Prince William at a support centre for survivors of the Grenfell Tower disaster.

Masi Naqshbandi’s story — like those of all the Grenfell residents — was harrowing, or so it seemed.

The 33-year-old lived, he said, on the third floor with his family, who were originally from Afghanistan. They managed to escape the inferno unharmed, but a relative in a flat at the top of the building was not so lucky. He was reported missing and later confirmed dead, one of 71 people who lost their lives that terrible night last June.
