The death toll from the London tower block fire has risen to at least 30 and police are considering whether criminal offences had been committed.
The first victim of the inferno has been named as Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali. His brother Omar broke down in tears as he told how Mohammed got trapped in the burning block as they both tried to flee their 14th floor home.
Brother of named victim Mohammed Al Haj Ali, Omar Al Haj Ali:
- And I looked behind me I didn't see my brother, I said 'my brother, my brother, where is he?' They were ignoring downstairs. Then I went outside, I called him and said 'where are you?', I said 'where are you?', he said 'I'm in the flat', I said 'why you didn't come they brought us outside I thought you are with us' he said 'no one brought me outside', he said, 'why you left me?' he said 'I didn't leave', I thought they took him outside with me, they didn't, they left him
