Firefighter's book that tells story from within the Grenfell disaster

A former firefighter who's written a book about his experiences of life within the London Fire Brigade, including the Grenfell disaster, has defended his decision to share the story.

Edric Kennedy Macfoy's Into The Fire gives an account of what he witnessed, as his group became the first to pass the 15th floor of the tower.

He says the events of last June left him with post traumatic stress, and at one point he considered taking his own life.
