Grenfell 5 years on: ‘I hear my friends screaming for help every day’
The Metro says It’s been five years to the day since fire engulfed the Grenfell Tower block in West London, tragically claiming the lives of 72 people.
On that fateful night in North Kensington, a small blaze, which started in one flat due to a faulty refrigerator, took just 20 minutes to become a raging inferno.
Fire services finally managed to extinguish the flames that licked the exterior of the 24 storey building 60 hours later.
For the 223 people who survived that night, their lives were irreparably torn apart. Each has since had to cope with the ongoing trauma of trying to rebuild everything, while they try to understand what happened. And why.
