A cleaner has been discovered in hospital after being feared dead in the horrific Grenfell Tower fire.

Fadumo Ahmed was trapped by the blaze near the top of the tower, and managed to make one last phone call to her mother as the flames closed in.

"I can't get out. Goodbye," she sobbed. The line then went dead.

But Ms Ahmed had a miraculous escape. Her body was found unconscious on the 18th floor by firefighters, who rescued her from the inferno just in time.

She was taken to hospital, while her friends desperately put up posters asking for information. Now, eight days on, Ms Ahmed's whereabouts have been discovered - to her friends' relief.

"In her last call to us she said, 'I can't come down any more. I can't get down. I'm in God's hands now. Pray for me. Goodbye.' We all cried," her mother told The Telegraph.

"He [the firefighter] is a hero. He saved her life, it's that simple. Otherwise, she wouldn't have got out."

Ms Ahmed remains in hospital, where she's being treated for smoke inhalation.

"We are just so happy she is okay. When we saw how bad the fire was and knew she was inside, it was terrible. We didn't think anyone else could get out of there alive," her mother says.
