A message from The Queen following the fire in Grenfell Tower yesterday.

My thoughts and prayers are with those families who have lost loved ones in the Grenfell Tower fire and the many people who are still critically ill in hospital. 

Prince Philip and I would like to pay tribute to the bravery of firefighters and other emergency services officers who put their own lives at risk to save others. 

It is also heartening to see the incredible generosity of community volunteers rallying to help those affected by this terrible event.
