Grenfell Tower: Second victim confirmed as Khadija Saye

R.I.P: Khadija Saye

AFTER PLEAS from friends in search of Khadija Saye, it is confirmed that the artist died in the Grenfell Tower fire.

The number of people who perished in the horrific fire currently stands at 17, with that figure expected to rise.

Efforts to recover bodies have been hampered after the blaze that engulfed the 24-storey building in the early hours of Wednesday flared up again on Thursday afternoon.

Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali, 23, and artist Khadija Saye, 24, have been named as the first victims of the disaster in west London.

London Fire Brigade commissioner Dany Cotton has said it is extremely unlikely that any survivors could remain inside, while police have warned a full search of the tower and the recovery of bodies could take weeks or even months.
