After the terror just 10 days ago in London city centre comes the horror of the Grenfell Tower blaze.

Twelve people have already been confirmed killed in the huge fire that ripped through the tower block, but police predict the death toll will rise.

Up to 600 people are believed to have been inside the 120 flats in the tower when the blaze tore through the 24-storey building in the early hours of yesterday morning.
