The catastrophic fire broke out on June 14 in a residential building in west London, quickly engulfing the tower. At least 79 people are believed to have been killed in the intense blaze.

Due to vocal cords damage, Adele cancelled the last two concerts of her world tour – which were due to take place at the Wembley Stadium in June.
