Terrifying. It has gone up like a candle. Poor people I cannot imagine how awful it must be for them.

Hi

It is terrible.

It also should not have happened, all Tower Blocks are supposed to have been retro fitted to prevent something like this.

Have just heard about it on the news, very terrifying.

I don't think any Country should build Tower Blocks, not that high anyway.

It's horrendous.
I can't believe how engulfed the building is.
Those poor people.

Susannah Reid on ITV's GMB should not be allowed to do live interviewing
Moronic questions like "did you see fire or ambulance crews rescuing people"
and when interviewing a lady of Middle Eastern appearance who didn't understand what a sprinkler system was......she raised her voice and spoke slower....even though the lady spoke very good English.

And Piers Morgan to an expert "can a helicopter not get nearer and swing a rescuer towards the window and abseil sideways to get the man out"

Re: Fire engulfs Grenfell tower block in west London

What's most shocking is residents have warned of this due to problems they've been having for ages. What did they need to say to get their fears heard ?
