There has been a horrific fire in London. On Tuesday night, many of the 200 residents of Grenfell Tower in North Kensington went to sleep believing themselves to be safe and sound at home. Many sadly will never wake again.
It’s an overwhelmingly sad day today. There have been many sad days recently – days when mass massacres, child molestation, war in Syria and the subsequent refugee crisis dominated the headlines. This sad day does not of course eclipse those, but is hugely personal.
