The Queen and Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in Cheshire, observed a 72-second national silence to remember the Grenfell Tower fire in London a year ago.

At the House of Commons, everyone stood for the silence which happened at mid-day across the whole country.

Emergency service workers respected the silence at the fire brigade training centre in Southwark.

Survivors and relatives of Grenfell fire gave a tribute at the local church, reading out the names of those who'd died and lightening candles in memory of their loved ones.
