Grenfell Tower illuminated in green one year after tragic fire

Vigils, silent processions, and memorial services have been held all across London to mark the first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower disaster, which killed 72 people.

The Grenfell Tower, along with twelve other residential high rise buildings, were lit up in green - a colour that's been adopted to commemorate the disaster.

Other city landmarks joined in too, like 10 Downing Street and the London Eye.

By dawn, dozens of vigils had begun, including a special memorial service at the base of the tower.

Survivors, families and friends of the victims, and members of the community mourned together, joined in the crowd by musician Adele who came to pay her respects too.

Silent marches also took place, doves were released, and memorial church services were held nearby.

In Cheshire and wearing Grenfell green, the Queen, joined by the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle marked the anniversary with a minute's silence.

So too did the Fire Service, Parliament, and the English football team while training in Russia.

Prime Minister Theresa May made a surprise and very quick visit to St Clements Church to lay a wreath - the same church she was booed at a year ago.

A year on from losing their homes and all their possessions, 129 Grenfell households are still waiting to be permanently rehoused by the council.
