There wasn't a dry eye in the house as James O'Brien listened back to the heart-breaking call he received from Shah, who was on the phone to his mother as she died in the Grenfell fire.

James said the call was one of the most memorable he's received in all his time working for LBC.

Shah's mother and aunt died in the fire four weeks ago after flames engulfed her 17th floor flat.

Emotions got the better of both of them as they listened back to the call he made to tell the story on LBC.

In the call, Shah said: "The smoke got them. And I could hear them and I could hear her wheezing. She couldn't talk any more."

Here is Shah's original call.
