Children prepare to remember victims of Grenfell fire

This June marks the seventh anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire, which led to the deaths of 72 people.

Eighteen children were among those who died in the fire in a high-rise block of flats in North Kensington, west London.

Local events to remember the victims are taking place all week in the local area, with young people also preparing for the anniversary.

Many of them live on local estates near the tower block and, in the aftermath of the fire, have been supported by community groups, including sport, music, art and drama.
