The Grenfell Tower fire, which killed at least 30 and injured many more, is rapidly becoming a grim landmark in the history of London.
The fire spread rapidly and engulfed the entire building within minutes in the middle of the night, leaving those dwelling inside little chance to escape.
In the wake of the tragedy, protesters have taken to the streets to voice their anger about what they believe to be an avoidable tragedy.
A number of people stormed both Kensington and Chelsea town hall, where scuffles broke out between protesters and police. The people chanted slogans and demanded an inquest into the tragedy.
Entire families remain unaccounted for inside a building that now stands as a monument to corporate and political neglect for the less well off.
