Death toll in London fire expected to rise

The Grenfell tower on the Lancaster West Estate in North Kensington in the city of London caught fire in the early hours of Wednesday.

A further 74 people - with 20 in a critical condition - are being treated in nearby hospitals.

At least 12 people have died after the huge fire destroyed Grenfell Tower in north Kensington, where flames could still be seen burning nearly 24 hours after the blaze started early on Wednesday.

More than 1 million pounds ($1.27 million) has been raised to help victims of the tragedy as volunteers and charities worked through the night to find shelter, food and clothes for people who had lost everything. We came outside and were confronted with the building that was completely engulfed in flames.

"There are times when all the words we can say are not adequate and sometimes words fail us because no words can do justice to how we feel, or what we have seen or what has happened".

The concrete-framed building was stripped of the insulating cladding that was fitted during a $12.7-million refurbishment completed last July.

Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn have both visited the site of the Grenfell Tower blaze today, and people are pointing out the marked differences between the two.

Fire Minister Nick Hurd said local authorities and fire services across the country would assess tower blocks undergoing similar renovation work to provide reassurance. "It would be wrong for me to get into numbers that I do not believe are accurate". "I think numerous 500-600 people who lived in Grenfell Tower are dead".

"The scene that I was confronted with was an unparalleled scene to anything I had seen before".

"So it is right that, in addition to the immediate fire report that will be produced and any potential police investigation, that we do have a full public inquiry to get to the bottom of this".

It's after a high rise in London was engulfed in flames in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Outside the cordons, impromptu tributes had appeared, with photos of missing people, messages of condolences, flowers and candles.

The exterior of the 1970s-built tower was modernised with cladding and replacement windows, while additional homes were added using vacant space in the building.

"What we can't have is a situation where people's safety is put at risk because of bad advice being given or, if it is the case, as has been alleged, of tower blocks not being properly serviced or maintained", Khan said. "Forty fire engines and around 200 firefighters went to the scene - but their equipment didn't reach much beyond the 11th floor".

Many were woken by neighbours, or shouts from below, and fled the building.
