Adele paid tribute to survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire as she marked the fourth anniversary of the disaster.

The chart-topping singer recorded a video message for the Grenfell United campaign group and called for the official inquiry into the blaze to be hastened along.

Adele, 33, said there are “so many unanswered questions” surrounding the tragedy and “no-one has been held accountable for that night’s events”.

A total of 72 people died in the west London blaze, which happened four years ago on Monday.

Adele added: “Grenfell United is still out here, fighting tirelessly for the justice and for the change that not only they deserve, that their community deserve, but that the whole country deserves.

“For that, I’d like to thank you. Thank you for putting your pain aside for all of these years to fight the fight. I can’t imagine the kind of personal consequences that has on you.

“I really hope that this time next year, you will have the answers that you need to finally, finally be able to breathe together. I love you. I’ll see you soon. Stay strong. We’re all with you.”

Adele, who is from Tottenham, north London, visited Grenfell shortly after the fire and has frequently shared messages of support for survivors.
