Adele (top) and Stormzy (top right) today joined thousands of mourners to remember the 72 victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster as Britain fell silent on the first anniversary of the deadliest residential fire since the Blitz. The devastated West London community became a sea of green - the colour adopted as a symbol of grief and hope in the wake of the blaze - as mourners stood tearfully and hugged at midday for 72 seconds. Adele joined mourners in North Kensington to sing a moving rendition of Bill Withers's Lean on Me, while Stormzy met some of the children affected by the tragedy and stood nearby as wreaths were laid at the 'wall of truth'. Faith and community leaders released 73 doves into the sky (bottom left) - one for every life lost, and another for the victims they fear have never been identified. Grenfell Tower turned green overnight to mark the anniversary (bottom right).
