Twelve peo­ple have died and more are feared dead af­ter a huge fire de­stroyed a tower block in Lon­don. Flames tore through the 24-storey Gren­fell Tower in Kens­ing­ton overnight, leav­ing peo­ple trapped on up­per floors – some hold­ing ba­bies out of win­dows and oth­ers jump­ing from their flats. Some bod­ies have been re­cov­ered from the smoul­der­ing re­mains of the block, which con­tains 120 flats thought to be home to be­tween 400 and 600 peo­ple. Many peo­ple re­main un­ac­counted for.
