Everything you need to know about the Grenfell Tower London Fire Disaster http://playtube.in/watch/5IplUFy2Nw4
What caused the London Fire 2017? The Inside Story http://playtube.in/watch/5IplUFy2Nw4
At least 12 people have died after a huge fire engulfed a tower block in west London at 1am on Wednesday. Police have said the death toll is likely to rise.
A huge relief effort has swung into action, with charity workers and volunteers providing aid for those affected by the fire. Residents have voiced their anger at a lack of coordination from the council or other authorities.
Transport for London suspended services on the Circle and Hammersmith and City tube lines between Hammersmith and Edgware Road. The A40 Westway is closed in both directions and there have been bus diversions. Check here for the latest transport updates.
The tower is 24 storeys high and contains 120 flats. A local councillor said it is home to between 400 and 600 people.
More than 200 firefighters tackled the blaze at its peak with more than 40 engines.
The London ambulance service said 68 patients were taken to six hospitals across London, 18 of whom are receiving critical care, while a further 10 patients self-presented at hospitals.
London fire brigade said it had reached the top of the tower block by early evening on Wednesday. No more survivors are expected to be found. Emergency services used drones to access the flats on the highest levels.
Pockets of fire were still burning on Wednesday evening and firefighters will remain on the scene overnight.
Witnesses described screams of terror and people jumping in an attempt to reach safety.
A baby was caught by a member of the public after being dropped from the ninth or 10th floor, a witness said.
Streets around the tower have been sealed off and residents in their houses told to move out.
Falling debris also caused nearby flats to be evacuated.
The fire brigade has called it an “unprecedented incident” and said the cause of the blaze is unknown.
The Grenfell Action Group, a residents’ association, repeatedly warned about the risk of fire in the tower and claimed that a major blaze was narrowly averted after a power surge in 2013. The group said its concerns were dismissed.
Experts said the fire spread at unusual speed and raised concerns whether the cladding may have contributed to this. The tower, which was built in 1974, recently underwent a major refurbishment.
