  1. Signs of hope after tragedy - Justin Welby

    Justin Welby

    The Archbishop of Canterbury, who will give a blessing at the service, says he has witnessed positive things in the aftermath of the disaster.

    "Community somehow seemed to emerge in a way in which many of us I think wondered if it still existed - particularly in the big urban areas.

    "Secondly is the fact that people were horrified. That sense of deep horror - this is not right that this should happen in a tower block in London, are we that kind of country, and a sense that this is wrong. Both those things are signs of hope."

  2. What happened on 14 June?

    Sometime before midnight a fire broke out at a 27-storey tower block in west London.

    On the fourth floor of Grenfell Tower, a Hotpoint fridge-freezer had malfunctioned and sparked a fire that would soon take over the whole tower.

    Emergency services were called to the blaze, which is believed to have started in flat 16, just before 01:00 BST.

    But the fire was not under control until 01:14 BST on Thursday - 24 hours later.

    A total of 65 people were rescued from the building by firefighters but 71 others died.

  3. Memorial service to honour victims

    A remembrance service is being held in tribute to the 71 people who lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower fire on 14 June.

    Among the 1,500 to attend the memorial at St Paul’s Cathedral in London will be families of the victims, Prime Minister Theresa May, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

    The multi-faith service will also honour the rescue workers who attended the scene and those who provided support in the aftermath.
