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.
