Exactly a year ago, during the night of the 14th and 15th of June 2017, a huge fire engulfed Grenfell Tower (a twenty seven storey tower block in West London) in flames. There are seventy one known deaths but there are still believed to be more; hundreds have been left homeless. It is thought that what caused the fire was an exploded fridge but there are still more theories. But still, a year on, the building still looks as if it has just been cremated. Tonight it will be lit green, and many vigils will be held in the memory of all those who died. People were told to stay in there rooms because it was thought that the doors to every flat was fire-proof, but it wasn't. Hours later the fire brigade changed their and just told everyone to get out: for some people it was too late. It is now believed that the reason the bock of flats went up in flames so quickly, was because of the cladding on the exterior of the building. An enquiry into the fire has begun hearing evidence this month. We now need to remember all the families that have been devastated by this tragedy and ensure this never happens again. By- Raphaela

On the 17th of May, 1943, Britain was losing World War 2. Something had to be done so inventor, Barnes Wallace, came up with something never seen before. The bouncing bomb. This amazing bomb was able to skim along the water and, if the area and altitude was right, it would blow up at just the right moment. Barnes Wallace was inspired by a catapult and some marbles. He discovered if you shoot the marbles onto water it will go further than if you shoot it in thin air. He took this on to create the bouncing bombs which were revolutionary for the war. Once the bombs were made, the 716 squadron took the bombs and blew up the three main dams in Germany that were called Mohne, Eder and Eneppe. After the war, a film was made about the brave RAF pilots that carried out the raid. This year, it is the 75th year since the film was released and it was shown in the Royal Abert Hall. It was also shown in many cinemas and on television.
