A year ago today, Grenfell tower in west London went up in flames, tragically killing 72 people.

The fire started in the early hours of June 14, caused by a fridge-freezer catching fire on the fourth floor of the 24-storey block.

Today London is honouring the victims and their families by paying tribute to all those affected.

Yesterday, buildings in central London as well as Grenfell itself were projected in green lights as a way to remember the victims.

At the time of the tragedy Theresa May promised that all families would be re-housed before the one-year anniversary.

However, the latest figures show that 68 families will spend the anniversary in emergency accommodation, mainly hotels, 52 households are in temporary accommodation and 83 families are in permanent homes, Kensington and Chelsea Council said.

Cressida Dick, Metropolitan Police Commissioner said: "The terrible tragedy of Grenfell Tower remains very real, raw and painful for many people, every day.

“My thoughts, and those of all us in Met, are with all those who died, the loved ones left behind, and all those who survived the fire that night.

"The continued resilience and sense of spirit shown by the community at the heart of this tragedy is inspiring. Many of us will take time today - one year on - to think back and remember.”

Today the UK will fall silent at midday to mark the anniversary of this terrible tragedy and to remember all of the victims and all of those still fighting the memories.

Our thoughts go out to every single person affected by this tragedy and hope that the necessary actions are taken so this never happens again.
