In a statement, her family said: "You were always vibrant, full of life and positive-minded. But one thing that made you so special was your constant devotion to your religion and your trust in Allah."

They added: “You were grateful, and appreciated even the smallest things in life. And your joy was contagious. Being around you could lighten up anyone’s day in a matter of seconds. You could befriend absolutely anyone – no matter who they were or what they believed in. This was made evident by the number of different people who were desperately trying to find you and your family during the early days of the fire. We received so many compassionate hugs on behalf of you."

The Metropolitan Police say they have now identified 46 victims of the fire. Earlier, the family of 12-year-old Jessica Urbano Ramirez have confirmed she's one of them - they say they won't rest until they get justice for her.

A statement released on behalf of the family of Jessica said: “We have received probably the hardest news any parents will ever have had to bear, over the past weeks we have been in a state of confusion and limbo. Now that she has been formally identified we feel totally crushed." They added: “Our little girl was loving, kind hearted and caring. She brought joy to everyone who met her and her laugh was contagious. Jessica will leave a lasting legacy in the hearts of her family and friends and the many many people who didn't know her personally but have come to know her since that night of the 14th June. Her light will shine bright and will light our individual paths as we start to move forward into coming to terms with our loss and heartbreak."
