People all across the UK have joined together today to pay their respects to those who were tragically killed in the Grenfell Tower block fire one year ago.

In a number of tributes, people from all across the UK stood silent for 72 seconds at midday today to pay their respects to those lost in the devastating blaze which broke out at the apartment block on June 14th 2017.

Amongst those who paid their respects to those who died in the fire, included the British Royal family, the British Prime Minister Theresa May and members of all parties in Westminster.

The England football team who are currently preparing for the World Cup in Russia also observed the 72 seconds as well as London’s may Sadiq Khan.

Meanwhile those who lived in the area pay their respects as well as laying a number of tributes which included candles, flowers and a mosaic.

The 24 hour tribute got underway shortly after midnight this morning when a number of London’s iconic landmarks including the London Eye were turned green in tribute to those who lived at the 27 storey high rise.

Local residents in Kensington and areas surrounding the tower block also came together to hold a peaceful march to celebrate the lives of the victims.

The emotional tributes come as 72 people sadly lost their lives in the devastating fire which broke out in the early hours of the morning of June 14th 2017.
