An angry resident has confronted Channel 4 news anchor Jon Snow over the media’s coverage of the Grenfell Tower fire.

The man brandished a sign which read “this is not a photo opportunity” as he challenged the veteran broadcaster.

At least 17 people were killed in Wednesday’s blaze - with authorities expecting the death toll to rise further over the coming days.

In the video captured by LBC’s Vincent McAviney, the resident shouts at the Channel 4 presenter: “You should have come here before”.

He then turns to the large crowd and holds up his cardboard sign and continues: “This is not a photo opportunity - this is real life.”
