London’s Burning: 27-storey tower block in Notting Hill is a blaze
Round about midnight a small fire started in the Grenfell Tower block in Notting Hill, London. The fire spread quickly and has since engulfed the whole block. Almost all of the 27-storey building is now on fire and the London fire brigade has been fighting the fire for over 9 hours. Tens of people have been injured and it is unclear how many people have lost their lives. The fear is the building might collapse. The images are surreal to say the least, almost out of a Hollywood blockbuster, but unfortunately this is real life and people lost all their belongings and loved ones.
