Six people have been confirmed dead and at least 50 injured after an inferno believed to have started when a fridge exploded ripped through a 27-storey west London tower block in just 15 minutes.
Scotland Yard says it expects the death toll to rise amid claims dozens including children and the elderly are still missing after fire engulfed Grenfell Tower in White City at 1am today.
Petrified residents were seen throwing themselves and their children out of windows to avoid being burned to death - others made makeshift ropes by tying sheets together.
But a baby tossed from the 'ninth or 10th floor' of the building housing 600 people was caught by a member of the public and survived with only broken bones and bruises, a witness has said.
The trapped, some of whom are still inside, were heard begging for their lives while waving white towels, torches and mobile phones to attract the attention of the 200 firefighters who started storming the building within six minutes of the 999 call.
Those who managed to flee said it was 'like hell on earth' inside and claimed there was no working fire alarm, sprinklers failed and the only staircase out was blocked.
Grenfell's own community action group called for the tower to be pulled down four years ago over 'appalling' fire safety in the building and said today their repeated warnings to landlord Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO) fell on 'deaf ears'.
KCTMO completed a £10million refurbishment last year and the new cladding encasing the block originally built in 1974 'went up like a match', one resident has said.
One White City resident called Tamara told the BBC: 'There were people just throwing their kids out saying “Save my children". Within another 15 minutes the whole thing was up in flames and there were still people at their windows shouting "Help me". You could see the fire going into their houses and engulfing the last room that they were in.’
