A mum-of-six escaped her burning Grenfell Tower flat with all her children but only had four of them when she reached the bottom of the stairs, a witness claimed.

Seventh floor resident Michael Paramasivan said the woman raced from her home on the 21st floor as flames ripped through the west London tower block just before 1am on Wednesday.

Though she left the flat with all her children in tow, she can now only account for four of them, leaving her devastated.

Mr Paramasivan told the BBC’s Radio 4 Today programme: “There were many people fleeing as we fled the building.

“It was horrendous. There was one woman who had escaped her flat on the 21st floor with her six children, but when she got down to the bottom of the stairs, she only had four of them with her.
“She can’t find two of her children anywhere. She’s in a community centre absolutely breaking her heart.”

    What a heartbreaking story!! I cannot imagine the pain this mother must feel right now to not have all of her children. To leave the apartment with all of them, but to get to the bottom and two are missing. I pray for the mother and her family
