It is the two year anniversary of the Grenfell Fire tragedy that killed 72 people back in 2017. Over 70 other people were also injured in the blaze that tore through the tower block two years ago.
As investigations into the fire continue, the Police have issued a statement via their website that reads: Commander Stuart Cundy, Specialist Crime, said: “Two years on from the devastating tragedy at Grenfell Tower, the thoughts of us all in the Met remain with those who died, their loved ones and those who survived the fire that night. We can only imagine how difficult this time of year is for those affected and the wider community; they continue to inspire us with their resilience and spirit.
“The police investigation continues with officers and staff working day in day out, with the bereaved families and survivors remaining at the heart of what we do.”
People from the community along with politicians are holding tribute activities today along with national landmarks paying respect to those that lost their lives. A multi-faith vigil and silent walk will also be taking place later today (14 June).
