Adele breaks down during Grenfell memorial at St Paul’s

Adele appeared incredibly emotional as she attended the memorial for the victims of the Grenfell Tower inferno at St Paul’s Cathedral on Thursday.

The 29-year-old Hello singer was joined by actress Carey Mulligan and her musician husband Marcus Mumford at the event which paid tribute to the 71 victims of the deadly fire at the west London 24-storey tower block in June.

Sitting among royals, politicians and residents, Adele broke down in tears over the incident, the site of which she attended less than 24 hours after the blaze tore through the building in what was deemed one of the worst fires in British history.

Adele joined more than 1,500 guests for the incredibly emotional service where bereaved families of the victims looked tearful as they made their way into the cathedral, with some carrying pictures of their lost loved ones.

Sitting between the husband and wife duo, the group broke down in tears as they heard the words offered to the heaving crowds paying tribute.

Following the June blaze, Adele made an appearance at Grenfell less than 24 hours after the fire swept through the tower block in just 15 minutes when a faulty fridge exploded, where nobody on its top three floors survived.

Tottenham-native Adele made a stealth appearance at a vigil being held to support victims and survivors, as a number of Twitter users shared images of the star at the scene where she was emotional and reportedly ‘hugged and comforted’ victims.
