Irish NewsIrish firefighter says he will forever be haunted by the faces of trapped children that he was unable to save . Mr Bunt, who is believed to have been born in Leamington and grew up in Kenilworth, fell and hit his head as he tried to picked up his sunglasses that he dropped on the ground.

One of the first firefighters to reach the Grenfell Tower blaze revealed he will forever be haunted by the faces of trapped children that he was unable to save.

In a harrowing account, Damian Magee told how he looked up at kids with faces pressed against windows and banging the glass for help.

“They were looking down at me like I was a superhero who had arrived to save them,” Damian said in an exclusive interview with the Sunday People.

“But we couldn’t reach them. The horror of what I saw will stay with me for the rest of my life.”

Damian’s crew sprinted half a mile through a traffic jam to get to the inferno, before ditching their breathing apparatus to climb as high as the ninth floor.

In the first detailed insight from a firefighter inside the tower he has revealed the terror they faced as they battled in vain to save the people who perished.

The crew manager at Whitechapel Fire Station, in East London, says his team got the call at 2am on Tuesday morning – an hour after the fire had taken hold.

He said: “They said it was a 40-pump fire. Nobody’s ever heard of a 40-pump fire, let alone been in one. We could not believe what our eyes were showing us. We’d never seen anything like that before.”

Minutes later, they were on the ground, racing on foot through heavy traffic. Damian, a 45-year-old dad of one, said: “We had to jump out and grab the breathing apparatus and run half a mile to get to the building. The heat coming off it was incredible but the thing that haunts me now is the screams.

“There were people in all the windows. We could just hear screaming – particularly children.”

He added: “It was like a war zone. There were huge clumps of concrete, composite materials, metal, all sorts of cladding, all crashing around the four sides of the building.

“We were looking up and waiting for gaps and telling people to leg it. We were running the gauntlet.”

Once he battled his way inside, he saw colleagues coming down the stairs “battered”, he says, adding “Their kits were smoking – that’s when you’re nearly combusting yourself, because you’re so hot.”

His crew knew the 20 minutes of air their air tanks held would not be enough to carry them high inside the 24-floor building, so they ditched them to save weight and concentrated on the lower floors. Rules say Damian’s team should not have gone beyond the ground floor without theirs. But they put their lives at risk to go as high as the ninth floor, helping carry people down to safety while hauling heavy hoses up the stairs.

He said: “People were taking deep breaths and going back up. They were going above and beyond.”

“I went straight back in and I could see a lady holding her kid up at the window, looking down on us.

“I was thinking... she was telling her children they were going to be OK, because they were looking down on 40 or 50 firefighters. They thought they were going to be saved, but we couldn’t save them.” He added: “I watched families die and I feel terrible. I couldn’t do anything for that lady and that kid.”

As the aftermath of the blaze continues to be felt, Damian said those who fought the fire with him will be left haunted forever.

He said: “We’ve trained for high-rise jobs – a flat in a high rise building on fire.

“But none of us has trained for an entire building to be completely ablaze.”
