Grenfell inquiry LIVE: Updates as grieving families share tributes

Tributes to the 72 people who died due to the Grenfell Tower fire will be heard today as a public inquiry into the tragedy begins.

Almost one year after the blaze ripped through the west London tower block in Kensington, bereaved friends and family will present profiles of the deceased.

Over two weeks, pre-recorded videos and statements will be delivered to retired judge Sir Martin Moore-Bick, who is chairing the inquiry in central London.

Tributes will be paid to six victims today – baby Logan Gomes, Denis Murphy, Mohamed Amied Neda, Joseph Daniels and mother and daughter Mary Mendy and Khadija Saye. It comes after the government pledged to consult on banning flammable cladding from high-rise buildings.
