A settlement has been agreed upon for hundreds of families who were affected by the deadly Grenfell Tower fire in London which killed 72 people in June 2017.
According to an article on the BBC, the cladding company Arconic confirmed it was among the companies involved in the High Court case and had agreed to a settlement with more than 900 people.
It has also "agreed to contribute to a restorative justice project to benefit the community affected by the fire".
Those who took part in the claim were represented by 14 legal firms. The lawyers said the agreement does not mean the end of any future claims - criminal charges may be brought in the future.
The settlement does not reportedly include all victims of the fire.
