Aunt Ana Ospina, a make-up artist, said: "She last spoke to her mum when she borrowed a phone and told her she was on the stairs with other people.

"We then have had unconfirmed reports/sightings of her outside of the flats and also being put into an ambulance, but we have checked hospitals and no news.

"She hasn't been found yet. We are doing a second visit to the hospitals and also the centres in and around Latimer Road."

The Metropolitan Police said anyone with concerns or information about people affected by the fire should call the Casualty Bureau on 0800 0961 233.
