It was one of the most horrific fires in living memory. Horrific memories of towers engulfed in smoke reminded the world of 9/11.
Although 12 people tragically lost their lives and 64 remain in hospital, the worst of times have brought out the best in Londoners.
Witnesses have described screams of terror and people jumping in a bid to reach safety after the blaze ripped through Grenfell Tower in west London.
A witness said that a baby was caught by a member of the public after being dropped from the tower as it was engulfed with flames.
Samira Lamrani said she saw a woman try to save a baby by dropping it from a window “on the ninth or 10th floor” to waiting members of the public below.
A man braved the heat, ran towards the building and managed to successfully catch the baby saving its life instantly.
