Today marks two years since the devastating fire at the Grenfell Tower block in North Kensington, West London.

Today and over the weekend, the wider community will come together resilient, as they did on 14 June 2017, and commemorate those who tragically lost their lives.

Today and every day our thoughts are with the bereaved, survivors, the local community and everyone affected by what happened at Grenfell Tower.

A 72 second silence will be held today, 14 June, at midday.

More information on community events happening today and this weekend can be found here.
