An inquiry into last year's devastating fire at Grenfell Tower in west London begins with two weeks of tributes to the 72 people who were confirmed dead.
A bereaved father gave a heartbreaking tribute to his baby son on Monday at the start of public hearings into the Grenfell Tower fire which killed 71 people in London last year.
Marcio Gomes was the first of the family and friends of people who died in the blaze to pay tribute to a lost loved one - his baby son Logan who was stillborn in hospital hours after his heavily pregnant wife Andreia escaped from the fire.
Only a charred, gutted ruin remains of Grenfell Tower, a 24-storey social housing block in a deprived pocket of the rich west London borough of Kensington and Chelsea, since it was engulfed by flames in the middle of the night of June 14, 2017.
The Grenfell Tower fire shocked Britain and led to an outpouring of angst over whether poor quality social housing and neglect by the authorities of a deprived, ethnically diverse community had played a part in the tragedy.
Separately from the public inquiry, the police are conducting a criminal investigation which could result in charges against organisations or individuals involved in the construction, maintenance or refurbishment of the tower.
The inquiry faces the daunting task of establishing the root causes of the fire from eye-witness accounts, videos and photos, expert evidence and the paper trail of the tower's history since it was built in 1974.
But before it delves into the details of what happened, the inquiry wants to give those bereaved by the disaster an opportunity to pay tribute to those they lost by talking about them publicly, or by showing photos or videos if they wish.
Tears for baby Logan
Marcio Gomes, who lived with his wife and two daughters on the 21st floor of the tower, went first with a highly emotional tribute to baby Logan.
Sitting alongside his wife Andreia, Gomes talked about the family's happiness about the baby they were expecting and recounted how hard he had worked to prepare a nursery for Logan.
He spoke briefly about the family's terrifying escape down the burning tower in the middle of the night, and about the moment in hospital hours later when he was told the baby had been stillborn.
At that moment, Andreia was in an induced coma being treated for cyanide poisoning and their two daughters were unconscious.
"I held my son in my arms, hoping it was all a bad dream, wishing, praying for a miracle, that he would open his eyes, move, make a sound," Gomes said, weeping as he spoke.
TRT World's Sara Firth reports.
Family photographs from before and after the tragedy flashed up on a screen, including an ultrasound scanned image of unborn Logan in his mother's womb, and images of him just after his birth, as well as photographs from his funeral.
Other Grenfell relatives and friends, lawyers and journalists in the hearing room wept as they watched and listened. Logan Gomes had been due to be born on August 21, 2017.
The commemoration hearings are expected to last nine days, although the schedule is uncertain as the inquiry has set no time limit for the tributes. They are expected to last between two minutes and over an hour.
The oral hearings into the circumstances of the fire will start later, on June 4.
"In terms of loss of life, the fire was the single greatest tragedy to befall this city since the end of the Second World War," said the chairman of the inquiry, retired judge Martin Moore-Bick, at the start of Monday's hearing.
While the official death toll from the fire is 71, the inquiry will commemorate 72 people as it is including Maria del Pilar Burton, a resident of the tower who died in January, having never left hospital since she escaped from the fire.
At the start of Monday's hearing, the bereaved and survivors gathered in the inquiry hearing room, at a conference centre in a hotel in Kensington, and stood in silence for 72 seconds to honour each victim.
