The MET Police have confirmed that 350 people should've been in the tower block on the night of the fire - of that figure, 255 made it out alive, with 14 people confirmed as being alive but not in the building on the night of the fire.

That leaves up to 81 people dead or missing - so far, the coroner has only been able to formally identify 32 bodies.

Also I'm guessing not including any illegal immigrants that may have been in the building

ITV put out a harrowing documentary that aired yesterday, interviewing firefighters, victims and families/friends and capturing the night itself and the aftermath.

One story in particular got me very emotional - a grandmother, mother, father and 3 children all died together. They were seen waving for help at a window but never got it. The programme interviews the brother, who revealed that his sister (the mother) text him to say goodbye.

It's one of the worst non-terror events I recall living through.

The fire occurred on 14th June 2017.
