On two sides of London, people gathered for two vigils after a weekend which has been devastating for the city.
In Parliament Square, placards were held up urging justice for the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster where more than 70 people were killed as flames took hold of the entire tower block.
Further north, people gathered at the same time this evening to show their respect after worshippers outside a mosque in Finsbury Park were hit with a white van in what police said was ‘clearly an attack on Muslims’.
‘London sticks together,’ one sign read after the alleged terror attack in the early hours of Monday morning. ‘We will not live in fear.’
Banners called for ‘Justice for Grenfell’ outside parliament amid claims ministers were warned of the dangers of adding cladding to buildings but dragged their feet over reviewing legislation.
Names of those missing or confirmed dead were posted on billboards with the message ‘Always in our hearts’.
Earlier today, the chairman of the Finsbury Park Mosque Mohammed Kozbar held a moment of silence for victims of a driver who plowed into a crowd of worshippers leaving a Ramadan prayer service.
He read a brief statement declaring that an ‘an attack on one faith is an attack on all faiths.’
Brendan Cox, whose wife Jo Cox MP was murdered by a right-wing extremist last year, said he met worshippers at Finsbury Park mosque and was ‘awed by their resilience and by the hundreds of locals who came to give flowers and kindness.’
A 48-year-old white man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder and terrorism offences after ten people were injured.
A man who was being given first aid at the time died at the scene, but it was not clear if he died as a direct result of the attack.
In Grenfell Tower, police admitted some victims may never be identified due to the ‘almost indescribable’ conditions of the inferno.
Prime Minister Theresa May has order a public inquiry into the disaster.
