Eyewitnesses from Grenfell Tower fire speak out

Last night's blaze at Grenfell Tower in West London could be the worst in British history. At least 12 people are confirmed to have died and dozens more injured or missing after a fire broke out at around 1 am. The building could collapse in the next 24 hours and it's feared nobody from the top three floors of the high rise has survived. I spoke to Louise Chantrell-Aiken, a local business owner, and Alessia, who lives a couple of streets away from the tower, to hear how residents are reacting to this disaster.
 
Our firefighters are a credit to this country, we must make sure they get the funding they need. Crews of 250 from London Fire Brigade have been at the scene for 18 hours fighting the blaze. Firefighters reached the scene just six minutes after receiving the call, which saved many lives. I spoke to Jim Fitzpatrick MP, Labour MP for Poplar and Limehouse, and former firefighter, to get a sense of the horror facing firefighters on the scene.
