Virtual service marks three years since Grenfell fire

A virtual memorial service was held on Sunday (June 14) marking the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire in west London in which 72 people died.

A series of video messages from victims' relatives were shown during the service; relatives paid tribute to loved ones and vowed to continue to fight for justice.

The second phase of a public inquiry into the phase has been suspended until further notice because of the lockdown.

It was investigating how the densely populated, 24-storey social housing block, was allowed to become a tinder box... and who was to blame.

Ambrose Mendy lost his cousin Mary Mendy and her daughter Khadija Saye in the blaze.

"We refuse to lay down and we refuse, come what may, to relent in our opposition to the general consensus of opinion about the Grenfell fire."

In a video message, Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was committed to uncovering the causes of the tragedy and ensuring it's never repeated.

The blaze was Britain's worst fire in a residential building since World War Two
