London tower block fire

Grenfell Tower (North Kensington) blazed through the early hours of this morning.

Reported as a fridge explosion on the 4th floor, the fire took hold and spread quickly.

200 firefighters still tackling the blaze that’s gutted the building.

Made up of 120 flats over 24 floors — 120 families — the panic, indescribable. People hanging out of the windows, screaming for help.

There are reports that people are still trapped in the building, and officials have confirmed fatalities.

Search and recovery efforts are being hampered by fears the building will collapse.

Residents raised concerns over the safety of Grenfell last year.
