All of these people have now lost their homes and property, as well as family, friends and loved ones.

“Prince Philip and I would like to pay tribute to the bravery of firefighters and other emergency services officers who put their own lives at risk to save others.

“It is also heartening to see the incredible generosity of community volunteers rallying to help those affected by this terrible event.”
