Viewers tuning in to this Morning on Monday were left emotional following the show’s coverage of the Grenfell Tower fire.
Roving reporter Alice Beer was at the Memorial Wall for the victims, where The Medwatch from North Kensington fire service arrived to pay their respects to the victims lost in the fire.
They were the first fire crew on the scene after flames engulfed the tower block.
Choking back the tears, a clearly emotional Alice started off the segment saying: ”I’ve never seen scenes like this before.”

Emotional images from the scene show the brave firemen breaking down in tears and hugging each other as they paid their respects to the victims of the tragedy.
Alice then went on to say that most of the tributes laid by the firefighters were apologies, with the fire crew saying sorry for the people they couldn’t save.
In a sign of respect for the heroes who put their own lives at risk to save those trapped in the blaze, Alice then broke out into a round of applause for the men and women which was soon echoed by the visitors at the site.

It wasn’t just Holly and Phil who were moved by Alice’s report.
